Fall Recipe and Table setting

Heidi Ann from Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly is hosting a fall recipe and table setting day for Saturday. When the weather cools down I like to cook foods like soup, gumbo and chili. One of my favorite soups to prepare is "Pumpkin Soup." I serve salad and crackers(sometimes yeast rolls) with the soup.

Pumpkin Soup

• 1 tablespoon butter
• 1 cup chopped onion
• 2 teaspoons minced garlic
• 2 pounds ham, cut into 1-inch cubes
• 3 (29 ounce) cans pumpkin puree
• 1 (32 ounce) carton chicken broth
• 2/3 cup cream
• 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
• 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary

1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the butter until soft.
2. Combine the onion, garlic, ham, pumpkin puree, chicken broth, cream, thyme, pepper, and rosemary in a slow cooker set to Low; cook 8 to 10 hours. Serve and enjoy

My fall tablescape is a re-post.

Hi Sue,
It has been awhile since I have had Pumpkin soup. As I remember it is very good. I am glad that you gave the recipe so that I can make some.
Your tablescape is very pretty.
As a traveling nurse how long are you usually there? Does the Hospital help you find a place? The reason I ask is that we have a room that have thought about renting out. My friend suggested that we post it at the hospital.
