Pumpkin soup & the pursuit of happiness

Yay first post!

I started this blog because I want to do more of what makes me happy.

Life is too short to stop learning so this is the beginning of a (hopefully long) journey in which I try to make new things.

Because time flies.

Not only when you’re having fun. But also when you’re looking the other way, making other plans.

This blog journals my feeble (but hopefully enrichingly fun 🙂 )attempt of slowing time down.

Life is happening now.

And I’m attending to make the best of it, by doing more of the things that make me happy.

Try new recipes.

Go places I’ve never been before.

Write better and more.

Do new things.

So for starters here’s an attempt at a very simple pumpkin soup in my pursuit of happiness  🙂


What you need (serves 4):

A pumpkin (around 1,2 KG)

Carrots (300 gr)

Garlic (two cloves)

Two red onions

1 liter of water

1 vegetable bouillon block


creme fraiche

How you do it:

Roughly chop the onions, garlic, carrots, pumpkin.

Heat a bottom of olive oil in a large pan (soup pan/ sauce pan) and cook the chopped vegetables for 15 minutes. Add water and bouillon block  and let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Blend with a stick blender.  And tata! It’s soup.

Add a spoon of creme fraiche to every bowl and some parsley.

Then it’s happy soup.
