Pumpkin soup with celeriac

Bacon is always a good way to start Sunday in Canberra

Okay, I’ll get to the pumpkin soup recipe towards the bottom of this post so if that’s what you’re after, go down. 

Gee it was cold this morning. I’m hoping this cold spell finishes soon.

For lunch I had a tin of fried fish and black beans

I love this with rice. I remember as a boy eating this with my Dad. I think my middle brother Dr47 liked it but my youngest brother Mr43 didn’t. I think Mum was a little indifferent but she’d eat it if Dad wanted it. I posted this photograph to Instagram and Twitter and received some interesting responses. My Asian friends were positive in their comments. 


During the afternoon I did some work, watched Star Trek and Farscape and did some ironing. I also watched Poultrygeist Night of the chicken dead. It’s on a par with Sharknado


 

For dinner I made a pumpkin soup with celeriac

  1. I Iike the patterns on your cutting board. I like fried dace with black beans too, and pumpkin soup with a whiff of curry powder is always nice.

    1. Thank you Sarah. I try to always remember to add curry powder to my soups. I’m going to have to buy another tin of fish soon 🙂
