more orange!


When the world becomes a snow globe, it’s time to make soup.  The sun is rising earlier, days are longer and everyone is talking about spring, but it’s still freezing cold.

In the fall I buy large and small pumpkins and line them up on the counter.  Their brilliant orange cheers my spirits. Two days ago, in cold February, I cut up my second last pumpkin and made a huge pot of soup with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin and coriander.

Five spice aroma

warms last nights of winter

Is this early spring?
