Pumpkin Soup

This is (kind of) literally a secret family recipe.  To be honest, there’s nothing particularly special or secretive about it, apart from the fact that it’s cooked directly from a handwritten recipe given to my husband by his dad.  There’s something about a handwritten recipe from a loved one that just makes the food taste that little bit better, right?

It’s my husband’s speciality and it seems to get better every time he makes it!
