    This looks great. Pity I don’t really like the taste of pumplin, although I did make a pumpkin soup the other day. I’ll give yours a go. I really want to make some French Onion Soup too. I’ve never made it myself but I have had it on a cold day. Thanks so much for all these delicious recipies.

      Hello Barbara, thanks for the correction. You are quite right pumplin is rather disgusting vs pumpkin. Those darn booboos keep creeping on…, even when you don’t care for them.
