Recipe: Pumpkin Soup

If you follow I Spy Plum Pie on facebook you would have seen I got a new toy recently (and if you don’t, maybe now is a good time to start?!).

Another delivery of my organic veggie box arrived on Thursday, which was a great thing to come home to after spending over 13 hours at work that day. My mind is ticking over with things to make, but I decided to start with something simple for an easy Friday night dinner. The result was a veggie frittata with a nut-filled sweet potato salad. Delicious!
