Recipe for Carrot Pumpkin; Sauce or Soup

Happy Halloween !!!

From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us! Scottish saying

Whatever you feel about the “holiday” – love it or hate it, costume or not, lights on or lights off – it’s an opportunity to revel in the pumpkin. Autumn is most definitely my favorite season: all apples, cinnamon and pumpkins, brisk mornings, cozy fires, and Halloween excitement. Last night I returned from a trip to Paris with pit stops in Pittsburgh and Boston. I was thrilled to witness the hills dotted with hints of the brilliant colors to come – that is, before the unexpected October nor’easter that blew in on Saturday with it’s heavy shroud of white.

With the first signs of fall comes a bounty of delectable pumpkin baked goodies to tempt us – I indulge vicariously 😉 and struggle to stick to my healthy regimen. So here is the recipe I promised earlier this month for a delicious, but also healthy and nutritious pumpkin recipe that’s a perfect buffer for all the chocolate, candy, and baked treats! I’ve added it to the parade of pumpkin recipes that Lora at Cake Duchess has in celebration of All Hallow’s Eve.

“Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.” William Shakespeare

 Better than eye of newt and toe of frog :-)

    Priscilla, I can’t tell you how envious I am of your visit to Paris!! :) I hope one day to get there {sigh}. I’m lovin’ this idea of the carrot pumpkin sauce. Besides its tasty and good stuff ingredients, it’s a beautiful color and you’ve presented it so beautifully!
