good orange things


No matter how much life is testing me, good things always seem to wander in too and give me something to cheer about. Here are a couple of good things from yesterday, which both happen to be orange.

The Eckhart Tolle book is helping me wake up! every morning and is great anti-cancerous-materialism therapy. The pumpkin soup is a recipe I got from About.com and changed a bit because of what I had on hand. This is my first attempt at pumpkin soup and it was easy and fun and and tasted like Thanksgiving. I'm a big fan of chunky, but if you're a fan of smooth, it could easily be pureed.

Pumpkin and Squash Soup

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 onion, diced fine
1 16 oz can of pumpkin puree
1 delicata squash, halved and seeded
1 1/3 cups chicken broth
2 cups rice milk
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tablespoon sage bits

1. Set oven at 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet or shallow pan with aluminum foil and oil well. Place the delicata squash pieces cut side down on the pan and bake until tender, about 10-15 minutes.

2. In large saucepan, cook onion in the oil until transparent.

3. Scoop the delicata squash out of its skin and add to the large saucepan, along with the rest of the ingredients. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or so. Taste the Thanksgiving!

It is indeed true! We will all be so happy to be reunited! I keep showing the girls pictures of Amia so they will keep remembering her.
