It’s getting bitter outside, the winter chill is upon us and I’m not a fan. While attempting to deny that it’s long past time for me to dig my winter coat out the closet, I decided to get a little creative with some leftover cans of pumpkin that were sitting in my pantry.
Sometimes you just need something cozy, but with a little bit of a kick to keep the chills away while wearing a blanket as a cloak around the house (to say that I don’t like the cold is a bit of an understatement). However, I didn’t have much in my kitchen at the time, other than a few basics and the odd leftover pie slice from Thanksgiving. While I could have made some sort of baked goods with the pumpkin (pumpkin bread is a year-long treat in my house), I figured it would be fun to try to make a soup that didn’t have a Campbell’s label on it.
