Autumn Pumpkin Soup

Dr. Jessie Voigts's picture

This delicious soup hails from Scotland, where we had it one evening after a  long drive to Shannon Airport and short flight from Ireland, and before a drive in the dark from Edinburgh to Inverness. Our friends created such a loving, homecooked meal that the hardships of travel were erased. 

Now, we are comforted by this easy-to-make soup every single time we enjoy it - and think of Scotland, and friends, and the love you put into cooking.

Hi, I'm Emily!  I'm currently a junior in college studying Spanish and Education.  In preparing to study abroad in Mexico last spring, I noticed there isn't a ton of information out there from people who have studied abroad in Latin America, so when I got back, I started my blog, Emily Abroad, to share my experience. I post practical tips and tricks, travel diaries highlighting our excursions to different parts of Mexico, and personal reflections on my experience.
