    Emma’s Dream Soup 7th May 2014 by/Tony Gorman

    What treats has Emma got in store?
    Ingredients just what you implore
    A table spoon of olive oil
    A butternut squash chopped with a smile
    Some vegetable stock to add to the taste
    And a pinch of ginger no time to waste
    Some shallots adding their appeal
    To give the soup a zingy feel
    A pitch of salt some pepper too
    Add chives and crème fraiche to finish the brew
    Then simmered gently in a pot
    And serve with bread when nice and hot
    And finished off with a dollop of cream
    A soup of soups to fill your dreams

    Thanks Emma for your recipe, when my squashes are ripe next Autumn I will make some soup.

    The Pumpkin 26nd October 2014 by/ Tony Gorman

    The orange glow of pumpkin fruit
    Spread far across the land
    Just like a field of soldiers
    Awaiting their command

    With Halloween almost here
    The orders will come soon
    And they’ll be carved to show a face
    Lit by a candle and light of moon

    And they’ll sit inside a window
    With a glow that’s full of grace
    And watch the children trick and treat
    With that smile upon their face

    They’ll be remembered for the carving
    Of their mouths that rise or droop
    And their eyes and noses like triangles
    And that taste of pumpkin soup

    And new recipes will be written
    On the Fountain Resource Group site
    Of new ways of cooking pumpkins
    With your meal on Halloween night

    And the seeds will be regrown
    To return next Halloween
    As they grow a field of orange
    From their vines of Irish green

    Hi Emma
    I used the same recipe as your butternut squash only I used a pumpkin.
    The soup was delicious and not a drop was left as my neighbours helped me finish it.
    They asked me how I got the recipe and I told them about your recipes on site.
    Take care

    This is one soup I’m going to try out now the winter months have arrived. The poem you have written from a recipe is brilliant. You really have a knack for making me smile.
