Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of six wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind. 


Recipe: Simple Curried Squash Soup

This is a great way to use leftover squash to make a thick, satisfying soup with just enough spice to warm you up on a chilly November day:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped

Melt butter in 2L saucepan. Saute onion until clear and soft.


  • 2 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 cup mashed squash
  • 1 tbsp good quality curry powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Heat through and then blend with hand blender. Simmer 10 minutes, adjust seasoning, and serve.
