Pumpkin Soup

pumpkins

Did you know that the largest pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 350 lbs. and measured five feet in diameter?

Ok, well, that’s just sick…

Anyway–on my never ending quest to find rational pumpkiny recipes that–

A) taste good

B) are quick and easy

C) have pumpkin in them–but are not pie

–we have found this lovely soup. It would be a good appetizer for your Thanksgiving meal–or a simple, festive supper for the Wednesday-evening-before-the-feast. It comes together pretty fast and has a very unique flavor, and will leave your family saying, “Ooooh, what is that?” It reminds me of split pea and ham soup only like you’d get on a cruise. The word luxurious seems to work here. It’s very good…you must trust me on this. And so much cheaper than a great, big boat.
