We then headed over to Jered's to remark and marvel at other's costumes. While they prepared for the night, I made food -- pumpkin, to follow the Autumn trend.
1 medium pumpkin, roasted and skinned
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tbs. Fish sauce
5 kaffir lime leaves
3 lemongrass stalks, the tender part chopped and the rest just left in stalks
1 can coconut cream
4 cups chicken stock
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Coriander
1 birds eye pepper, chopped
1. Place all ingredients, except the coconut milk, in a large soup pot and simmer for 45 mins.
2. Remove the kaffir leaves and lemongrass stalks. Purée the soup in a blender and add the coconut. Simmer for another five minutes until completely combined.
3. Pray. Eat. Enjoy. Go spook.
