Food time!

No work and I'm still running around with so many things to do. But I thought I'd leave this for you as I run out the door and I haven't done a food post in oh so long. We all know that the holidays mean loads of good food. But what if you have to contribute and you want something different? Welcome to Brandied Pumpkin Soup! I made it for Thanksgiving but I'm a huge fan of pumpkin and I think it's perfect fall and winter. I'm still perfecting the recipe but the basic soup itself is so good! Not sure where I got this (it magically appeared in my recipes) and it's super simple to prepare.

Brandied Pumpkin Soup
