Cream Pumpkin Soup

So with this recipe I was an idiot and a genius!  I made this a lot last year and when I made it again the other day I thought it tasted more savory then I remember.  THEN I realized I totally forgot to add the brown sugar....idiot.  It was fine, but the sugar makes it the DELICIOUS recipe that it is. :)  When adding the brown sugar I heated it up a little and made a spider web...genius!  Maybe that's an overstatement, but cute right?

Creamy Pumpkin Soup (based on this recipe)

2 T brown sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
2 c chopped onion
2 T butter
4 cans (14.5 ounces) chicken broth
1 29 ounce can of pumpkin puree (make your own puree)
2 t salt
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground black pepper
2 cups whole milk

Saute onion in butter in saucepan until tender.
Add 2 cans of chicken broth
Stir and bring to boil
Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes
Transfer mixture to blender
Blend until smooth
Return mixture to saucepan
Add remaining 2 cans of chicken broth

Add pumpkin, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, pepper
Stir well, bring to boil
Cover, reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes stirring occasionally
Stir in milk - do no boil

A good side with this soup is sourdough bread or cinnamon sugar toast.

How to Make Spider Web (if your going to do this I would omit brown sugar from the soup...otherwise it will be too sweet)

take a little soup and add brown sugar
stir and add to plastic bag
cut tiny hole in corner of bag

make circles best you can - kinda hard with a bag
use toothpick to make web - make lines from the middle out

Oooh, definitely going to try this. Since I am vegetarian, I'll be replacing the chicken broth with veggie stock. Hope it comes out as well.

YUM! I am printing out this recipe for sure. I remember last time I went looking for pumpkin puree - it was no where to be found. I cannot wait to try this out. I've made pumpkin soup before, but it had Tabasco added to it. The brown sugar sounds like a delicious ingredient.
Casey..if I remember right I did that too one time and it was fine...I think :) I do it a lot so I'm not sure if it was this soup or not.

Yona..brown sugar makes everything nice :)

Let me know if you guys like it!

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
