Pumpkin soup with orange and ginger

Fall is over. The first snow fall of the season has arrived and it got pretty cold outside. If you want to warm yourself up, you should try this recipe for pumpkin soup with orange and ginger, especially when there are so many pumpkins around :) A perfect treat for such cold days.

To make the soup, you will need:
600 g of pumpkin cut into big pieces
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of fresh grated ginger
half of an orange
100 g almond flakes
salt and freshly grind pepper

First place the butter and ginger in a pot. Add the cut pieces of pumpkin (I left the skin on). Squeeze out the juice from the orange half and pour it into the pot, you can put the orange skin as well, as it will give more flavor. Keep it on medium heat for about 20 minutes until the pumpkin is soft.
In the meantime brown the almond flakes on a pan.
When the pumpkin is soft, take it out and let it cool then pill the skin off. Blend everything and add salt to taste. Finally, pour the soup in a bowl, sprinkle with browned almond flakes and freshly grind pepper.

Canada here I come!

I arrived safely in Canada but also a little bit sick. Feeling a lot better right now though.

It has been a while since my last post but it's because I have been quite busy recently.

I am focused on my job searching, having a temporary part time job, and also being engaged in Fashion Calgary project, Portrait Campaign 2012 (http://www.fashioncalgary.ca/). So very busy!!!

Despite all this work, I also had moments of pleasure. I went to Lake Louise, where I could see a stunning landscape of the National Park. I did a 6 km hike (I made it, barely but I did :D ), cannoed on the lake and had a wonderful tea break with a glass of ice wine, lots of different cookies and scones with amazing view of the lake.

September was really warm in Calgary. Fall revealed different kinds of beautiful colours and sun was giving lots of positive energy.

I celebrated my first Thanksgiving, with amazing turkey baked by a friend. And now waiting for Haloween. The event that we don’t really celebrate in Poland. But here it is a quite big thing. People dress up, carve pumpkins, decorate their houses.

And speaking about pumpkins...wherever you go, there are pumpkins everywhere. And because it became bit colder in Calgary I thought that delicious pumpkin soup with ginger and almond flakes would be a great idea. Recipe coming soon :) !!!
