Home style Pumpkin Soup

Ever since I was little, I’ve been addicted to pumpkin soup and I am not even sure why. Might be the salt in it…for some reason I am addicted to salty foods! At work, my colleague and I have a soup each day, with the exception of one day last week in which our kettle stopped working and also took half the pharmacy’s electricity along with it.

I’ve always just loved pumkin soup and whenever it was on sale and when it wasn’t-( esp during the Covid-19 stockpiling saga) I would always have enough soup on hand in my locker at work and in the kitchen in my corner to last me for days. I’ve tried other flavours of soup, but nothing really tasted as good as I thought pumpkin soup tasted. I tried chicken noodle curry, mush room, ham and pea, I just didn’t like the artificial taste in these other flavours. That’s until one day I swapped a pumpkin for my colleague’s DUTCH CURRY. Now every time I have an instant pumkin soup, I am craving a Dutch Curry. I am not sure how to describe a Dutch curry and I’ve never tried the real thing, but it really hits the spot you know?! It’s a little spicy, but not too spicy..and it has rice and peas in it! Just enough to allow me to last till lunch time. It’s super cold in Adelaide these days… hot soup is the best!

Suddenly I am no longer buying my pumpkin soup, but Dutch Curry.

I have changed so much this year. What’s happening to me?!!?

Good intentions

Over the last few days…I have been thinking about blog posts that I could write about..ideas that might sound good…and then …I did NOT write them down and now I have forgotten them 😦

Like all things in life, if we do not take grasp of something tightly enough, it will slip from our hands easily…

For example, when I am stressed..I tend to snack more..I don’t eat more food…I just LOVE snacking…whether its nuts, pretzels (yumm), chips…you name it and I probably have eaten it. It is an extremely unhealthy habit of mine….I just stock up and hoard a WHOLE lot of junk food…some which turns out to taste bad…yet I force myself to eat it..because I bought it already you know…so yeah no doubt about it….feed yourself unhealthy things and you become unhealthy!!

Cue the never ending headaches…the pimples :(..the bad sleep…the poor immune system… sads… but yeah but my point is…we have to be careful what we put in our mouths..or our heads… if we think to ourselves we *need* that coffee to survive…that snack to study…then we feed ourselves lies. Because, we can prove ourselves wrong…maybe not on the first, second or even twelfth time…but we can do it ..because with all addictions we started off not being addicted…

It’s sad how addiction has been so closely linked to bad things…I wish more often that I would be addicted to doing good…or being nice…But like all things even doing good should be in moderation…coz if you are so generous you gave away all your money…then ..that’s just a poor decision.

Anyways, I have to stop my procrastination …5 more days to D-Day.. 😮
