This is such a fun time of year! It is filled with beautiful colors, great decorations, and of course fall produce. I mean what is be better than crisp apples and pumpkins? Cranberries and pomegranates? Sage, thyme, rosemary? Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger? Yumm….. It is making me excited just thinking about it!
I feel like October and November is preparation for December. It gets everyone excited for what is to come. Well, at least this is the way it is for me, you will come to learn that I love Christmas. (72 Days!)
Getting back to food….I love to try and get creative with not just baked treats, but dinners too. It is really fun to bring some of the holiday to the dinner table. Of course the added bonus is the possibility of spooking your kids into eating their veggies!
This is a great warm, creamy, and comforting soup. It is light and healthy, but feels and taste indulgent. Just prep your ingredients and simmer away.
The fried sage adds really great flavor to the soup and makes for great presentation as well!
Oh and you can not forget about the croutons! I used half a loaf of leftover beer bread and the flavor combinations were great. But, really any bread will do and of course cutting the toast into ghost is totally not necessary just a fun little idea!
Grab a bowl, a spoon, maybe a ghost too, and cozy up to this comforting soup!
