3-4 chicken breast
3-4 quarts water
3 Tbsp. chicken bouillon
3 celery stalks sliced
1/2 pkg. Bowtie pasta
15 baby carrots cut in fourths.
Mrs. Dash, garlic powder, and pepper to taste.
Boil the chicken in water, bouillon, and a few shakes of garlic powder, pepper, and Mrs. Dash in a large soup pan. Remove Chicken after it is boiled...but, keep the broth. Add more water if the water is low. Add carrots, celery and potatoes and pasta. When pasta is almost done add chicken. In another bowl mix melted butter, flour and warmed canned milk and milk. Mix until all lumps are gone. Add to soup mix and boil to thicken. This soup tends to really thicken up as it cools. !
Make the stew ( or any hearty soup) and then put in a cleaned out pumpkin.
Make the stew or any other soup you would like and then put it in a pumpkin that has been cleaned and rubbed down with cooking oil. This makes the outside shiny and gives some protection. Cook it for about an hour or until the sides get a little soft. Don't overcook or it won't support the soup. This is so yummy because the pumpkin cooks and you get a little pumpkin taste with the soup...plus you look like Betty Freakin' Crocker!
There are a lot of recipes on the internet for pumpkin soups, etc... I have never tried any of them, but they do look yum!
Play with the pumpkins...use them for dip bowls, soup bowls, anything- Have fun. This is the best time of year to have more serving dishes...You don't have to store them, because you just throw them away when you're done!
