Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Sorry if these recipe posts are boring but I find writing stuff on the blog is a great way to remember recipes without having to keep lots of paper around the house.  Plus this soup is really really yummy and couldn't be easier to make.


CREAMY PUMPKIN SOUP

Ingredients:
* 1 large can pumpkin puree (NOT pie filling)
* 1/2 med. onion, chopped
* 2 carrots, chopped
* 1 teaspoon minced garlic
* 2 springs fresh rosemary
* 2 boxes chicken or vegetable stock
* 1 cup cream or half and half or other milky product (like almond milk)
* EVOO
* salt and pepper to taste


Directions:
* Saute onion and carrots in a little EVOO until tender. 




* Add rosemary, garlic, pumpkin puree and chicken stock.




* Add cream/milk.  Fish out the rosemary stems.




* Serve with a yummy salad.

APPLE DRESSING

Ingredients:
* A few tablespoons apple cider vinegar
* 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
* A few tablespoons apple sauce
* EVOO
* s/p to taste

Directions:
* Put everything in a container with lid.  Shake.  Serve. 
* The amounts will vary depending on your taste and servings.  If you don't have maple syrup, just use more applesauce.  The great thing is that with the applesauce, you use significantly less oil and it is still nice and thick.

I am *dying* over the Apple Dressing, it sounds so good! And I actually bought the pumpkin to do the soup, I am getting so domestic!

Hope by the time you see this the itchy irritation is gone, sending you a smile in hopes that's the case!
