How to Make Pumpkin Pecan Soup

I am excited to share this pumpkin pecan soup recipe with you today.  We have gotten seven or eight nice baking-size pumpkins from our garden so far, so it is time to do some garden cooking!  I baked the pumpkins, pureed them,  and then used some of that puree to make a little experiment that turned out wonderfully.   This pumpkin pecan soup was such a lovely, easy dinner this evening!  Warm, with a smooth texture, with yummy pecans added.  It would have been great with some crusty homemade bread…but I wasn’t that ambitious 😉 Pumpkin Pecan Soup   As...
