 Now for some cooking entertainment . . . from the post on Poh's recipe for Pumpkin & Red Capsicum soup, i did it, i chopped, i simmered, i processed, i seasoned, i did the squeeze of lemon to taste & tastey it was . . . da dah, mine is JUST LIKE THE PICTURE only i must love chives more than Poh . . . like Tupperware reheatable container??
Finally, a little hooray for a very brave soldier (not my husband) over in Perth with the Special Air Service (they're the best soldiers in the world) who won the highest honour, the Victoria Cross medal for Valour, in Afghanistan.  It's the 2nd one since the Vietnam War.  Extra special that he's the father of beautiful twin girls too!!  I wonder if he can make Poh's pumpkin soup too, probably. 
Have a fantastic week everyone, love Posie

I love pumpkin soup and yours looks oh so delicious.

Oh thanks Tammi, he's not my husband!! Our twin girls are 9 + we have extras. But thanks for thinking it could be my husband!! Love Posie

You're already Pohing!

I am not entering any of the auctions... I know, I know, it sounds dreadful. But I like so many things and I'm friends with so many of the bloggers, that I couldn't choose.

At my work, every dollar you donate to the fund means they will match it. So we have given that way...

Hope you understand!! x

PS - Also, very lovely to hear about that brave solider. I bet he could cook Poh's pumpkin soup in the field with only a flame and a tin cup whilst under enemy fire! x

I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
I had a lot of fun putting it together. I would love your feedback on it if you've got a spare minute.
