Super Simple Pumpkin Soup Recipe…

If you have been following our blog then you know that I have been sidelined by a broken ankle with subsequent surgery. Way…No…Fun! As a very independent, active person the hardest part of my recovery is the mandatory sitting.  With this temporary loss of freedom I’ve missed my thrifting jaunts, HomeGoods visits and just my general out and about socialization.

One thing I miss most – believe it or not – is grocery shopping and cooking. Honey Bee has been doing a fabulous job of taking care of me and holding down the fort, but today I just got a bee in my bonnet…and I wanted to cook! I knew that whatever I prepared would need to be super quick and easy as I can’t stand up and would need to accomplish this feat from my kneeling scooter.

I have been envisioning Fall and had a hankering for something with pumpkin. I decided to create a soup :) I am so happy to share this original recipe with y’all.

Perfect Fall recipe for Super Simple Pumpkin Soup. Packed with flavor and a tinge of sweetness. So Good!Here’s what you’ll need:
