Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Yum
It has been throwback week around here!  The hubby has been obsessed with transferring all our family videos onto CDs before the tapes become ruined.  Oh my gosh!  My babies are now 20 and 17, but seeing all that footage is so much fun.  A HUGE distraction while I am trying to work, but a distraction that brings a HUGE smile to my face.  Our girlies were so stinkin' cute and the hubby and I look just how we look today.  Ha!  Yep, we haven't aged in 20 years...yeah, right.   I am so glad we have these videos that we can now preserve onto a CD...until the next form of technology comes out.  I think I know what we are doing over Thanksgiving...lots of family home movie watching! 
So, today is all about a favorite throwback that will keep ya warm and is made with the flavor of the month, pumpkin!


Each spoonful is so creamy!
A mild pumpkin flavor seasoned with fresh sage.  Boy is it good!



That'll take the chill off!
