    YUM! We loved it! My picky son didn't get to try it because he is out but the rest of us really liked it. For the half and half I used fat free and it worked out fine. I also used an immersion blender. Thanks Geema!

    I had misplaced my recipe, given to me by my grandmother so you are a lifesaver. The only thing I do different is I cut pie pumpkins in half and roast them in the oven then I scoop out the flesh to add to the soup and puree in batches. I garnish with chopped chives.

    I did enjoy this soup. I topped it with cilantro. I made half the recipe except for the curry I left as called for. Very creamy. Thanks Geema!


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href=http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/ps/3/g7hopubcqxji7ub0y6fg target=_blank>http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/ps/3/g7hopubcqxji7ub0y6fg</a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/houdini6.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif alt= /></p>
