So when I spotted these at Target yesterday I thought I needed to try them (you know, uh hem, for the kids and all...). Anyway they're pretty good if you like Pop Tarts. Or am I the only one who secretly likes a good brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tart ?(maybe just me and Brittney Spears)
But this weekend on the menu at our house will be this yummy soup, I got the recipe from my friend Ashley and it's quickly become a favorite of mine. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed (and trust me, the pictures don't do it justice). Think Soup Nazi good: make it right or, no soup for you!
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. curry powder
2 cups canned pumpkin
1 tsp. salt
2 cups cream or milk (I used fat free half and half, and never missed the cream one bit!)
2 1/2 cups chicken stock (I didn't have the real thing so I boiled 2 1/2 cups of water and used chicken bouillon)
Directions: Melt butter in skillet and add sliced onions. Sprinkle lightly with sugar and saute until limp. Sprinkle with curry powder and saute an additional few minutes. In a food processor or blender or a hand immersion blender(don't skip this step, trust me this soup is worth dirtying up your food processor) mix curried onions, pumpkin, and salt. Transfer pumpkin mix to large saucepan and heat slowly with chicken stock, and then add cream.
