I decided to start the new Autumn off with a new tradition. I made my first ever Pumpkin Soup. Since I have never even tasted it, I didn't know what to expect. I added homemade croutons since everything is better with buttered toast. ( not necessarily) I was pleasantly surprised! I ate far more than I had planned since the rest of my family thought I was nuts for eating pumpkin in something that wasn't meant to be sweet.
It did help to have a pot of Mustard greens and cornbread on the stove too.
