Pumpkin Carrot Soup

No I do not take such lovely photos, I made this recipe last night and forgot to take a picture, face palm.

So if you know me personally you know I’ve been counting down the days until the cooler weather comes but sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do and bring the cooler weather to me.  I turned down the air conditioning, turned up the Celtic music, lit some autumny candles and then cooked me up a nice pot of pumpkin soup.  Served with the bread this soup definitely is a meal in itself.
 
I alternate between carrots and sweet potatoes depending on what I have on hand, once cooked you wouldn’t notice the difference in taste.  I like it on the sweeter side so I add brown sugar to cut the heat from the curry.

Bon Appetite!
