My husband bought some mini pumpkins for a Halloween display. So I decided to try to make some pumpkin soup. I went through several recipes until I took bits and pieces from each one to make my own. Thing is... my husband loved it, so did my 96 year old mom. I loved it too. I made this recipe with small pumpkins so it would be easier. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
