Mexican Pumpkin Soup

So I had this sugar pumpkin that I bought around Halloween that needed to be either eaten within the next week, or tossed. (You know me, I love anything pumpkin!) So I checked out a Vegan cooking blog I subscribe to, and today a recipe on what to do with your Thanksgiving leftovers (namely pumpkin) was posted. I chose this one from the list because the picture had the best looking soup. And also because I must have 3 pounds of leftover potatoes. It is a very hearty (read: filling) and healthy soup, not to mention savory and tasty! Here is a picture of my lunch bowl before it was quickly emptied.

If you're looking for something to make with your unused portions of pumpkin (fresh or canned) since most recipes only call for half of a can, there are lots of good ideas on FatFree Vegan Kitchen. Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE fall foods?

OK, first: That's a fancy damn lunch bowl. Mine is Tupperware. Second: why do you subscribe to vegan foodie blogs? Are you even remotley vegan? Do you know anyone that is? Why?

Yep, not cooking dinner tonight. Enough original cooking for one day. Why vegan food? 1- it's yummy, and 2- I could very easily switch over to being vegetarian (I eat red meat one a week? Every other week? Chicken and fish would be much more difficult though), but vegan would be hard since I love all things dairy. And yes, I do know a few vegans. Not many, but I can relate when we talk food. And share recipes.
