I am making Vanilla Pumpkin Soup today.
I took a nice lil ol pumpkin, took out the seeds to roast later and cut it up in chunks.
Then I started taking the 'meat' out of the pumpkin. This was going on a cookie sheet to roast in the oven.
The outer shell was saved to feed to the wild birds outside.
I then took the roasted pumpkin and added it to half n half, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, butter, chicken stock, cinnamon, almond flavoring and sugar. Brought that to a boil.
Then I blended it all in the blender. Made it into a warm rich goodness!
