    LOL Cailin it is so simple it is not funny! I am not a master chef either so it wont be so techinical LMAO

    All you need are butternut pumpkins, an onion, butter and cream!

    First fry an onion in some butter, then boil it in with the cut pieces of pumpkins, which is *just* covered with water (you can add more later if you like depending if you like thick soup or not!). Once the pumpkins are soft, blend them with a stick blender thingo (in the saucepan) and finally add some cream (small tub of thickened cream) should only need about half, more or less to taste. If you want to add flavour, you can include a pinch of cinnamon!

    Default Yummy Winter Soup

    Here is a really yummy, easy recipe for a nice winter soup.

    Chicken Corn & Noodle Chowder

    1 teaspoon canola oil
    1 medium brown onion chopped coarsely
    1 teaspoon crushed garlic
    440gm can corn kernals (drained)
    750gm can small potatoes (drained & quartered)
    1L chicken stock
    400gm chicken (chopped)
    150gm dry egg noodles
    2 tablespoons sour cream

    Heat oil in large saucepan; cook onion & garlic, stirring, until onion is soft.
    Add corn, potato & stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover & simmer for 10mins.
    Blend or process potato mixture until smooth.
    Return potato mixture to same pan, add chicken & noodles.
    Simmer uncovered for about 10mins until chicken is cooked through & noodles are soft.
    Serve topped with sour cream.

    YUMMO! It's also great the next day, but the noodles soak up a lot of the juice, so you just have to add some water before you reheat it in the microwave.

    Default Pumpkin Soup

    I know there are a few recipes of good ol' pumpkin soup...

    Here's mine!

    4 cups chicken stock
    600gm butternut pumpkin chopped
    2 medium potatos
    1 onion
    1 sweet potato
    1 clove garlic crushed
    salt & pepper
    Sour cream to serve

    Ok... I cook the pumpkin, potatos, sweet potato and onion in the microwave in batches in the chicken stock. Then I blend it and combine in a bit pot and simmer for 10 minutes for the flavours to combine. Salt & Pepper, sometimes a bit of chives chopped on top with a dollop of sour cream in the centre of the bowl.

    Soup can be prepared up to a day ahead; keep, covered, in refrigerator. This recipe is not suitable to freeze or microwave.

    2 egg yolks

    1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


    Cook bacon in large saucepan until lightly browned, add butter and onions, cook over low heat for about 5 minutes or until onions are soft.

    Add flour, stir over medium heat for 1 minute.

    Remove from heart, gradually add water, stock cube and potatoes, bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer, uncovered for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.

    Here is my absolute fav soup:
    I don't do the messure thing, sorry
    Potato Soup
    Cut potato into chuncks into a pressure cooker (about a cup of water at the bottom), add chopped onion, chopped mushrooms and finely chopped pack streaky bacon. I aslo put in some worcestersause, mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for about half an hour and open cooker. Spoon out the potato's and mash it up a LITTLE milk. (You can throw everything in a liquidizer - I don't own one) Put the mash back in the pressure cooker and stir so everything is mixed. Add a cup of cream and bring to boil. Add a lot of grinded pepper (this makes it for me) and serve hot!
