    That is so sweet! And the soup sounds incredible. I wish I had a Vitamix so I could get soups that velvety smooth.

  2. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    You have some lucky parents. 🙂

    The soup looks and sounds incredible. It makes me crave fall weather!

    Hannah, this is not only one hell of a delicious soup you made there, but also a wonderfully written post. It’s good to be reminded that parents need pampering, too every once in a while. I hope you’re grandpa is on his way to a full and speedy recovery!

  4. Rach

    Haha! I love your poem the best! 😉 Soup looks delish, girl!

    Isn’t it amazing how we can expres love by the means of food? Your soup looks so wonderful to me … (minus the coconut milk, as I have to confess, because I’m really not fond of anything that tastes like coconut.)

    I hope you granddad will be recovered soon!

    A perfect winter warmer!

    Wishing your grandad a speedy recovey xx

    I am sure your parent’s enjoyed this soup – how could they not, with such a wonderful ingredient list and all the care and love you put into it? Beautiful, beautiful post. I also like the positive reinforcement message 🙂

    I am sorry, though, to hear your Grandpa is still in hospital. I hope he’s healing and feeling better :-/

    oh i have all these ingredients, think i may make this tonight! Not too hot though.

    Baby hate’s chilli as much as I do! Thank God someone is normal in my family 😉

  9. Sig

    Oh yum!

    I love how you express your love through food, and in particular soup. Soup is AWESOME – especially in OMG so-bleeping-cold weather like we are having (I am still bitter from being torn away from my sundrenched beaches. You so couldn’t tell lol).

    I made a pumpkin soup on Monday for dinner, but since I am a chilli-whore and I love Thai food – this recipe would give my pumpkin soup a kick in the hypthetical balls. (Coz if it had real ones then this soup is definitely NOT vegetarian :P).

    Am going to try this once I find a nice piece of pumpkin (is it weird that I nearly wrote nice piece of ass??).

    The secret ingredient here really is love. This is a gorgeous post, it is so nice to recognise our parents for all the wonderful things they do for us and I’m sure your parents were nourished both physically and spiritually by this lovely soup.

    lol i love that poem 😛

    soup looks delicious!!

  12. Keely aka The Richest Girl in Bondi

    That is the most beautiful poem I’ve ever read ha ha! I’m sure they like being your parents too. Who wouldn’t when they get to come home to soup like that? Wishing your grandpa well. x

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Aren’t you the sweetest daughter!? 🙂 Now I’d better not show my parents this or they might ask for it 😉

  14. hungryandfrozen

    Well the soup sounds wonderful, but everything that went before it was so sweet. Looks like you definitely lucked out, parent-wise.

    No no no – don’t mention the car and the 11.30pm calls on the blog or your mum will have printed proof and you will never be able to deny them years from now (because that is what kids do when they get a bit older)

    But at least you will be able to remind them also that you made them wonderful soup which sounds like great comfort

  16. The Teenage Taste

    Mmmm…that soup looks fabulous! I love how smooth and creamy it looks. *swoon*

  17. Hannah

    No joke, this sounds like perfection in a bowl. I love all of these flavors and ingredients… As soon as it cools down a bit more, this is the first recipe on my fall cooking list!

  18. Alisa Fleming

    Beautiful sentiment Hannah 🙂 And this recipe is going on my to make list. Yum!

  19. Errign

    I love Thai food AND pumpkin! 🙂

  22. April@MyFoodTrail

    Awww, how sweet! What a lovely daughter you are 🙂 It’s really great to hear you’ve got such a great relationship with your parents/family.

  23. chocolatesuze

  24. leaf (the indolent cook)

    What a heart-warming soup! Also, that poem is ace – says all the important things I want to say to my parents, too!

  25. msihua

    Oh okay.. Thanks (Hannah’s) Mum and Dad.. we kind of like her and would like to keep her 🙂

  26. Vaala ◪

    Hello 🙂
    You have awesome parents. This must be part of the reason you are so awesome too (only part because the main part is that you are just awesome because you are you).

  27. Camille

    Sounds positively delicious and warming through and through. As we rapidly approach winter squash season, I’ll look forward to making this sunshine-colored soup when there is no other sunshine anywhere to be seen.

  28. Agnes

    You know how else this soup says “I love you” to your parents? You took the time and energy to heat the ingredients and turn them into a delicious COOKED soup. That’s love.

  29. Ricki

    Who knew you were a poet on top of all your other talents?!! And congrats on the new car! (heh heh).

    The soup looks great. So many delicious ingredients living in harmony! It’s just the kind of thing I know I’d love. Bookmarked–and thanks so much for submitting it to WW this week. 🙂

    Sticky Fingers is my middle name. Or at least it’s my lifestyle. Are there any openings as a postal courier in your neighborhood?

    Slowly making my way through all these posts I missed while away from the compy comp for a few weeks. It’s like reading a novel that I thought had ended (super sad face), when – hello – here are some previously undiscovered chapters (joyous face of delight)!

    […] of my own life (which is helpful because it’s, erm, a distraction? Yes, that makes sense), cooking and, of course, making sweet […]

    This soup is right up my alley. I do love a pumpkin soup. And it’s probably one that is still good even as the days are warming.
