    Deb in Seattle's Note:

    This is a nice basic soup that is great as main course or a side. I also like to serve as part of Thanksgiving dinner if I'm hosting a large crowd.

      This is delicious and very simple to make. I was able to just use my hand blender to whip it up or puree it. Feels like you are eating a beautiful Autumn day. It is a gorgeous tawny gold color. My DH love it!
