Now that it is officially Autumn, many parts of the country are noticing a change in weather and their thoughts turn to the season’s holidays of Halloween & Thanksgiving. This is the time of the year when the fall harvest takes place and one of the most common things associated with both holidays is the pumpkin. There are several things that you can make from a pumpkin, including pie, roasted seeds, spiced latte, soups and more. Below is a simple Pumpkin Soup Recipe you can try.
Pumpkin Soup Recipe
