Who ate all the Broccoli?

I'm so pleased with my broccoli... well I was until I checked the new shoots yesterday...

I'd forgotten what a battlefield the veggie plot can become...

And it looks like I'm not winning....

So there won't be broccoli soup here anytime soon. But I have been busy in the kitchen today. The temperature has dropped and its definitely soup making weather. So I've made Pumpkin soup instead.

Can you believe that I actually had difficulty sourcing some fresh pumpkin this morning. Perhaps everyone else has the same idea? It is rather a chilly damp day, so soup is just perfect.

Here's a previous post that shows the recipe I use.....its the family favourite. /neesienatters/2010/08/pumkin-soup.html
