pumpkin soup

I posted this last year too, but it is so delicious, and so easy, that I have to share it with you again.


Pumpkin Soup

Steam, then peel and blend in your blender:
1 medium sized pumpkin
2 sweet potatoes, peeled

Add:
1 cube butter
half-and-half as needed, to keep the blender from bogging down
salt to taste

Toast
1 C slivered almonds

Serve soup garnished with tosted almonds, 1 t sour cream, & nutmeg.

The trick to this soup is a good blender and to blend the pumpkin and sweet potato until they are velvety.

Here I chatter about books, parenting, election 2008, recipes, teaching college writing, and the adventures of getting settled in with our two freshly (Fall 06) adopted school-age children from Russia. This blog is chapter two; chapter one is posted at Jamie & Suzanne go to Russia. I live in the City of Subdued Excitement, Cascadia, Land of the Free.

I am the wife of a man I call My Gift from a Generous God. I am mama to two lovely children, Dandy and Chickadee that became ours in September 2006 in a court-room in Siberia. I am the daughter of two people whom I love and admire. One of them, my dad, is a new (Dec 06) paraplegic.

In my previous life (B.C. - before children), I was a college English teacher, specializing in composition and ESL composition.
