The Most Delicious Creamy Pumpkin Soup Recipe

The Perfect Soup For Fall

As the weather cools down, you are going to want to make this soup! Even if you don’t think you like anything made with pumpkins, you will really enjoy this soup.

When I was growing up, my grandmother worked as a waitress for a private elite men’s club in the city, working events and serving the members. She also dated the head chief there at the time. I should say that I am talking about the 70’s here and that women are now allowed into this private club!

It is beautiful and historic looking and when I was there for dinner recently; I looked around the room and thought about my grandmother serving from the waitress stations. Most likely the same ones from earlier days.

Not to get off track from the creamy pumpkin soup, but my {and I only have one} Le Creuset 4 France Flame Orange Cast Iron Bakeware came from the club. For some reason, it brings back memories of that time, the chief stopping by with food he had prepared for the club members and my grandmother who I dearly loved.

Back to the soup…it’s good…it’s very good and easy to make. It also freezes well!
