Hard to cook?

May 10th, 2006 at 09:02 pm

I have been laid low for the last 10 days, so have been watching more TV than I usually do. There is one ad that bugs the H@#$ out of me. This chef tries to make pumpkin soup for the family, but makes such a mess that he has to buy a can of Campbell's soup. Yeah right, it's so hard to make pumpkin soup that we have to buy expensive convenience foods instead. I was cooking entire dinners and baking bread when I was 12 years old. No wonder people are broke when they lack basic skills and have to buy everything. What do they do with the time they save? Watch more TV? Go shopping? Work harder so they can have enough money to pay for all the conveniences?

Hmmf, reminds me I have a whole pumpkin sitting in the frig. I'm off to make me some soup (and cheese scones - can't buy those in a can)

    Finely chop an onion and fry in 1 tablespoon oil until soft. Peel and chop 1 lb pumpkin into bite size pieces, add to the pan with 2 cups water or stock. Cook until pumpkin is tender, about 20 min. Puree in the blender until smooth. Return to pan, add half cup milk or cream with salt, pepper and nutmeg and reheat, taking care to not boil.
