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


First of all there is Trick or Treating from 3 to 6pm!  Shopper Services will give the first 500 kids under the age of 12 filled treat bags!  Adults can get bounce back coupons and a Tanger coupon book.  As if that wasn't enough...... Go here to get a coupon for 20% off a single item  at participating stores. Gap Outlet is offering a BOGO FREE coupon good on Oct. 30 only!  Wahoo!  It's valid for anything in the store!

I LOVE trick or treating at stores rather than houses.  Last year we went Trick or Treating to 9th & 9th and had the BEST time!  Great Harvest gave out HUGE cookies, Coffee Garden gave out wassail,  and Firemen were handing out candy. There was even a band!  SO FUN! --9th & 9th Trick or Treating is from 4-6pm.
