Recipe: Claire’s Pumpkin Sausage Soup

November 1, 2010

We like to name our recipes in this house. We have Alana’s Pad Thai, Bebba’s Chicken Pie, Mom’s Boeuf Bourguignon, Anna’s No-Bake Cookies, and on and on. And now we have a magnificent recipe to add to the list: Claire’s Pumpkin Sausage Soup. Ho-ley Mo-ley. This stuff is incredible. And I don’t even like pumpkin flavored things that much. Except Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. Recipe below and on Claire’s blog.
