Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Pumpkin Soup

I made this yesterday for supper with some of my pumpkin biscuits and it was so delicious.
Nice on a cold day. Not that it was cold here yesterday as it was 81 degrees. But it was good anyway.

Ingredients:

3 TBS. butter
1 sweet onion, diced
1 1 /2 boxes of 32oz organic chicken broth
3 small cans of pumpkin or 1 big can + 1 small can
3 carrots,chopped
2 TBS brown sugar
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 c. whipping cream
1 tsp. nutmeg

Directions:

In a large saucepan, melt the butter and saute' onion.
Add the broth, pumpkin, carrots, brown sugar and the bay leaf.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins.
Remove the bay leaf. Take your hand blender and blend the soup until a puree'. Or you can do this in a blender in smaller increments. Return to pan if done in blender.
Stir in cream and nutmeg.

Makes 10-12 servings.
Serve with Pumpkin Biscuits

Enjoy!
