Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to you all!

For the first time, we tried to carve a pumpkin and make pumpkin soup. The first pumpkin soup recipe I found looked easy enough. We even had almost all the ingredients at home.

But the complications started right away: getting the pumpkin stuff out of the pumpkin through that tiny hole at the top. We were hungry and impatient, so we used a minor cheat by cutting the pumpkin in half, cutting some of the flesh out with a small knife and scraping the rest out with a spoon. After that, making the soup was easy. It tasted good, but wasn’t as orange as I had hoped.

So what is your favourite pumpkin soup recipe? And how should we really go about making the soup and a Jack-O-Lantern?
