Soup of the Evening

The much anticipated fall season has brought the relief of cool breezes, 
gorgeous clear skies and open windows. 
Apparently this time of year has also brought a sore throat and pressure in the sinuses to the point of explosion.
Well, I don't know about you, but I woke up from my NyQuil induced coma this morning and thought
"I can't believe my head is still here!"
My voice is almost gone but I have just enough to croak/warble to the kids. I say something  like "Oh, please stop asking me questions that require an answer" and the kids look baffled and amused. 
It is pretty ridiculous and I would laugh at myself if it didn't hurt so bad!
Anyway, yesterday evening my tummy was rumbling but the thought of eating scratchy food made me wince. So I fell back on one of my favorite fall soups from our church cookbook:

Curried Pumpkin Soup

So smooth and creamy!
Here is the recipe:
4c chicken broth
1 (15 oz) can 100% pure pumpkin
2tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp onion powder

Heat all ingredients in a large saucepan until thoroughly heated, stirring often. 
Top with a dollop of sour cream. 
Serves 6.

For dessert, I recommend Hall's Mentho-Lyptus cough drops. 



  1. oh sweetie!! I'm so sorry you've not been feeling well. We've had a sore throat nastiness at our house as well. That soup looks SO good! What a great photo. Hope you feel better soon :)

  2. Oh! Hope you feel better! And the soup looks yummy! Think I'll skip the cough drop, though ; )

  3. Mmm... menthol and pumpkin. What a flavor combination! :-) You gave me a great idea for another dinner that's easy and I already have all the ingredients for!
