Yesterday we bought our first pumpkin of the year. I love pumpkins. Bringing home a pumpkin, to me, is like bringing home a Christmas tree (for people who like bringing home Christmas trees!) It makes me feel all festive and warm. This evening I scooped it out and made a big pumpkin soup which we had with fat sarnies made from nice Waitrose bread, home-grown tomatoes, cheezly and basil. Pumpkin carving tomorrow. Yaay!
