Anyway here is my effort - I wanted to do something different other than they usual face so I hunted on the internet and found some great templates at Marthastewart.com
Very difficult to photograph (the light inside - torch light so that there is no fire hazard LOL) shines through the window and through the etched stone edging as well.
And with the insides I have made Thai pumpkin soup and homemade bread rolls. Pumpkin soup recipe below......
Thai Pumpkin Soup
2lb (900g) pumpkin flesh
1 dessertspoon Olive Oil
1oz (25g) butter
1 onion - finely chopped
2 inches ginger - grated
2 red chillies - deseeded and finely chopped
14oz tin chopped tomatoes
1pt (500ml) chicken stock
14oz tin coconut milk
1 dessertspoon chopped coriander
Heat the oil and butter in a large pan. When it is foaming add the onion, ginger, chillies and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Next add the pumpkin flesh and stir well. Place the lid on the pan and leave to simmer for 8-10 minutes. Give the mixture a stir from time to time to prevent sticking.
Add the tomatoes and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and season with salt and pepper. Replace the lid and cook for a further 45 minutes.
Remove the soup from the heat and blitz in a liquidiser. Return the soup to the pan, add the coconut milk and cook for a further 6-7 minutes.
Garnish with herbs and more slices of chilli if desired.
