2 in a row?

Mum came over for a visit yesterday. I made a scrumptious lunch of a Big Salad with salmon. Loyal readers know my love affair with pumpkins. We had some delicious pumpkin soup--my favourite so far! I rarely measure when I'm throwing things together, but here's a sorta recipe:

Pumpkin puree, about 3-4 cups-ish (You could prolly use a can of pumpkin)
1/2 can of coconut milk
2 c. sweet potato water (I save my vegetable stock, & this is what I happened to have--perfect!)
Curry powder to taste
Salt to taste (Himalayan from Mercola--it's good for you!)

I use a hand blender & blend it up to make it creamy. (Also great for other creamy veggie soups like asparagus, broccoli, etc.)

After lunch, we had tea (of course) and a Frazier Fest. Mum looked out the window and saw a rainbow. Really? 2 days in a row? COOL!

Mum on my front porch with rainbow.

Into life, a little rain must fall. In these uncertain times, it's nice when we get little surprises of rainbows, too.

I just texted my sister to see if she's up for pumpkin soup tonight:).
It's awesome that you spend time with your mum. My mum just moved to WA. Think I'll call her today.
