My husband loves lamb shanks, he often orders them when out at restaurants, but it’s just one type of meat that I rarely cook with.  However when I read this recipe in the Meals that cook themselves in the Slow Cooker cookbook it sounded delicious, very fuss free so I had to try it. I […]

    How did you know that I just this morning bought 11.5kg of pumpkin for $1.05 to make and freeze pumpkin soup for the winter?  Yep great deal at the local Fruit and Veg shop.  $0.09/kg!!!  Will it work for the other types of pumpkin?ReplyCancel

    • That’s an awesome deal!!ReplyCancel

    • Kirsty

      I’ve made with another type and it worked out well.  I chopped it up more though as it was too big.ReplyCancel

    Hi Katrina

    If you can give me any tips on how you overcame your fear of public speaking I would greatly appreciate it.

    Donna Hay’s roasted pumpkin is so good & what’s even better is the whole family loves it :) ReplyCancel

  • Sally

    I freeze my soups this way too (Antartica tops are great for the initial freeze!!!) and most other of my freezer meals go in flat too. Then stored in a small SAMLA (Ikea) container in my freezer!
    (And I had the exact same food processor for years. Dont drop the motor part…it doesn’t like it!)ReplyCancel

    I have a pumpkin soup recipe I just love. But it involves a LOT of chopping, which is bad for my arthritis, so I don’t make it nearly as often as we’d like.  I’m going to give this one a try! Thanks for posting it (and the freezing tips).ReplyCancel

  • jess

    Thanks for recommending Kat – I don’t even like pumpkin soup but this looked so easy I thought I’d try it. I also roasted half a bulb of garlic to go into it, and substituted extra stock for the cream to make it low fat, and it was delish! Husband, baby, and toddler all loved it. Is it possible to re-use the freezer bags? or do any of your readers have other suggestions? I’m trying to cut down on how much plastic we turf… Love your blog, thank you!ReplyCancel

  • dirtgirl

    Had made this soup after seeing it on an old Donna Hay program. Was wondering if it was freezable, when I came across your site. Have now packed 3 large Ikea bags using your method of a tall jug/container. Managed to grab a huge butternut whilst down Southern Highlands and it cost less than 1kg does here in expensive Sydney! Plus have 2 x 6kg Kent pumpkins grown in garden that will be used for more soup! Thanks for sharing your tips.ReplyCancel

    I also roast cloves of garlic with the pumpkin – on top of the seeds. Then in my thermomix I puree the cooked pumpkin (flesh, seeds AND skin!) with roasted onion and sweet garlic!! I don’t add a lot of liquid when pureeing (just enough to keep it moving in the machine) because I freeze in individual serves for lunches. So when it comes to serving/reheating, sometimes I’ll add hot water, or heat skim milk separately and add to a reheated pumpkin base serve.
    Being very thick means I can also add it to a casserole that’s a bit too liquidy.ReplyCancel
