The week before Thanksgiving, my friends and I had a small “Friends-giving” at our house. Each person brought food for the table, potluck style. We had the bird (chicken this time), stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and the best part – a pumpkin cheesecake! My contribution was a pumpkin soup, made from scratch with a sugar pie pumpkin, chicken stock, and heavy cream. It was easy and fun to make since we cut up the pumpkin and baked it to make the puree – something I had never done before. The extra pumpkin we kept for decorative purposes, and we even got to bake the pumpkin seeds (which were gone within minutes!). Definitely a good recipe for a delicious and cute fall soup!
