Here’s something different this week for Pink Saturday, a vintage china cream soup set from Germany. Cream soup sets are elegant and back in the day every classy household would have a set. You could use this for butternut squash soup or a soft mushroom or even a hearty beef vegetable. It’s fun to try something new like a classy soup dish.
For some reason most contemporary china doesn’t come with handled cream soup bowls. That’s ok because you can always mix in a different set of dishes for a special course like soup. It’s a little like using unique dessert plates – there’s no reason you have to match everything on your table.
Cream soup bowls have two handles and are usually bigger than a coffee cup, about the same width as a sauce dish but deep. This one holds over a cup. Compare that to bouillon cups which are about the same size as a coffee cup but with two handles.
This is one of the prettiest cream soup sets with the dainty rose garland and lovely shape. It is thin china that looks special. We have only one of these left in our store but it’s too pretty and unusual not to share with you on this Pink Saturday!
My husband Dave makes a killer butternut squash soup and the recipe is at the end of this post.
If you like this elegant fine china cream soup we have this in our store Cat Lady Kate’s Elegant and Depression Glass.
Thanks for visiting our Pink Saturday pink depression glass post this week, and as always a big thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for organizing this fun event. Please be sure to visit the other bloggers to see how pink we can be.
Dave’s Butternut Squash Soup
Peel and chunk up a good size butternut squash.
Put in a pan.
Add 2 cans of chicken stock (reduced salt is fine)
a dash of nutmeg and Tabasco sauce to taste
Boil together until the squash is tender. This takes about one hour.
Run everything through the blender and serve.
