Pinterest Pumpkinfest


Source: myrecipes.com via Carol on Pinterest


When I think of pumpkin cooking my first thoughts are for sweet recipes. Pie, muffins and all sorts of wonderful assorted desserts come to mind. But in my pumpkin meanderings I found some terrific looking savory recipes that have a place in the middle of the meal, not just at the very end. This pumpkin soup is my choice for a favorite savory to try. It's getting colder here and I like the thought of turning on my stove this weekend and having the aroma of pumpkin fill my kitchen. The recipe looks easy to do and could anything be more perfect for autumn than actually using a pumpkin for a soup bowl?

Thanks for your good wishes and hugs. I had a wonderful day at services -- the topic of a post to come -- and my tooth (big prayers!) is doing just what a tooth should do. It's sitting quietly in my upper left jaw and not making a peep.

Wishes for a sweet weekend!

You are not the only one thinking pumpkin and cooking. This cold weather we are having is making a lot of us hungrier and desiring warm food. Hope your weekend is a wonderful one too!

I'm happy to hear you are feeling better. I have been wanting a big pot of soup too! It was 33 here this a.m. - cold for us Southerners!
Hope you will enjoy every minute of this lovely Autumn weekend.

The little pumpkins w/soup look delish! I hope you and your tooth will soon be okey. I hate dental visits and have had my share of issues too. Nothing worse than a sore mouth, and then pocketbook! Have a great weekend. jo

I have tried alot of unusual things in my time. But I must admit I have never sampled a bowl of pumpkin soup. My curiousity is roused. I think I may try it. The coriander, ginger and pesto in it give it that savory flavor. Sounds delicious. Knock on wood... I'm glad to hear your tooth is sitting quietly in your mouth, behaving itself. Fingers crossed it stays that way. Take care.

I love pumpkin pie and pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting, but the soup makes me cringe! I think I'll make an apple pie.

Lynda said...

My daughters like pumpkin soup. I love pumpkin bars - - - not quite as healthy though, are they?!! YUM!

Cathyjo said...

The soup looks so yummy I can almost smile it. My prayers are with you. ((Hugs))
