Today’s word prompt is ORANGE, and what’s more orange than a pumpkin, especially in October?
It’s really a very simple soup, but it looks elegant if served in pumpkin halves instead of soup bowls. And here, of course, lies a problem: how many halves do you get when all you have is one fairly large acorn squash? Right, you know your fractions – two. Those two are fairly large, too, quite a bit bigger than an average portion. So I was very happy when I saw little pumpkins that looked just like acorn squash in the Patel Brothers store. I asked my husband to get me a couple of those. Well, wouldn’t you know, he brought me two different ones, albeit the same size. One did look like a small acorn squash, which is what I had asked for to begin with. The other one was sort of elongated, with smooth lemon-yellow skin. My husband said they were mixed together in the same bin.
