“Are you making carrot soup?” my husband asked as he was unpacking the shopping I had ordered for delivery.

“Noooo”.  I turned around to see him holding up two one and a half kilo bags of carrots.  I’m not sure how that happened but I suppose that is what you get for doing the shopping in your sleep.

There was a pumpkin too, which I did mean to order, having recently bought pumpkin-shaped baking tins.  I think they were probably meant for cakes but I had in mind bread with the appearance and taste of pumpkin (and had been getting dubiously excited about the prospect).

So, we had Pumpkin and Carrot Soup with Pumpkin Party Rolls flavoured with sage and red onion.

Ideas on what to do with the remaining two and three quarter kilos of carrots are most welcome.
