Pumpkin Soup Recipe & Giveaway Winner

Hello Lovely Friends,

I've finally taken a minute away from the busy-ness of this week to announce the giveaway winner here at My Petite Maison.  Thank you for being patient with me!

My husband and I have planned day trips to antique hunt for the next 10 days starting this Friday and, of course... when you have plans, you get very busy and there's more to do than expected, right?  

On that same note, I'd like to thank all my new customers & friends to My Petite Maison's store and to our new Facebook Fan Page too.  Also, our repeat customers & friends mean THE WORLD to us and touch this petite heart!  


The winner of the giveaway is Mikey of Shabby French Cottage
Mikey, please email me your info and I'll get your Jeanne d'Arc Living Magazine, Romantic Country Magazine, Antique Mercury Heart from My Petite Maison's store and Jeanne d'Arc Marseille tag to you.

Thank you for everyone that joined in here and also all the people that liked My Petite Maison on FB too!

I wanted to post one of my very favorite soup recipes for you before we take off on our buying trip too.  I've posted it before and people seem to love it as much as we do here...

I'm going to make it while we're here enjoying our day trips and in between trying some new gourmet restaurants in Wine Country.  Here's the recipe:

Soupe de Potiron
(Pumpkin Soup)
3 c water
1 onion, diced
1/2 T sugar
2 tsp salt
10 ounce can pumpkin puree
(no flavor... just pumpkin)
1 c milk
salt & freshly ground pepper
creme fraiche (if desired)

Bring water, onion, sugar, salt to boil
Cover & simmer 10 min
Whisk in pumpkin & bring to boil
Simmer uncovered for 5 min, stirring constantly

Puree mixture in food processor or blender
until smooth

Pour back into saucepan and whisk in milk

Heat back to high simmer & season
with salt & pepper to taste

Serve with small dollop of creme fraiche
and light drizzle of olive oil if desired

Serves 4
 Hope you give it a try & enjoy!

We're off to enjoy some lovely times here in Wine Country...
Searching for store goods,
Enjoying good food
and celebrating our anniversary!
I will post photos of beautiful things
while we're out and about
and playing tourist all around
Wine Country.

Oh, ten straight days of shopping for antiques?! Someone would have to pinch me, because I'd surely think I'd died and gone to heaven! Have a grand time and do bring back lots of treasure! I'll be here, making soup.
