How About Some Pumpkin Soup

hollyRecipes Leave a Comment

It’s gorgeous weather this week at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia. There is something about that crisp fall air that invigorates and livens both body and soul. You can see it in nature. The squirrels are bouncing off the trees, the farm critters act extra full of themselves, the birds are lively, and all Creation in gets more energetic.

It is a great time for outdoor activities, taking drives to enjoy the fall leaves, hiking, day trips, and even weekend camp-outs. Nothing is quite so wonderful as a bowl of tasty hot soup when you have worked up an appetite and come in from the cold. This might be one recipe you have not tried, but if you like pumpkin, give it a try. You may like one of them as much as my family did.
