Every year, one of our favorite things is Spiderweb Soup. Here is the recipe for mine:
1 Large Onion, diced
3 Tbsp. Butter
1 tsp. Curry
2 Small Cans Pumpkin
1 Quart Chicken Broth
2 Cans Evaporated Milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
Saute onion in melted butter in saucepan. When onions are tender and translucent, add curry and mix well. Add in rest of ingredients. Puree in blender, return to pan and heat through--do not boil. This gives the soup a smooth even texture, with the yummy flavor of onions.
Now, this is a great soup all fall and winter long. To make it extra spooky for October, put some sourcream in a small sandwich bag, cut a hole in one corner, and squirt circles of sour cream in the soup.
Take a toothpick and starting from the center pull out making it look like a spiderweb. Add a plastic spider ring and a biscuit cut out like a ghost and you have a yummy, spooky meal!
