Pumpkin Potato Corn Chowder

Pumpkin Potato Corn Chowder

 I have been wanting to recreate this Pumpkin soup since last November.  Last year my husband and I went on a mission trip to Haiti with a group from our church.  You can read about it HERE and HERE if you want:-)  It was such an awesome and eye opening experience for me.  It is one thing to see the poverty from pictures and TV, but to experience it first hand breaks your heart.  One thing that I came back thinking was how I need to be so much more thankful for the things and people that God has put in my life.  I also realized how much I really can do without.

One of our meals while we were in Haiti was a pumpkin soup.  It was so absolutely delicious!  Like-lick-your-bowl-clean-delicious!!!  For an entire year I have regretted not asking the missionary to have the Haitian ladies write it down for me.  So a few weeks ago, I saw this Pumpkin Pepper soup recipe from Organized Island linked up to my weekly Trick or Treat party.  I decided right then and there that I was using that as my base for creating the Haitian soup.  It was so good that even a year later I remembered what was in it.  I did add the extra sausage because I had it in the fridge and it just seemed like it went well with it;-)

This soup was so good.  I will admit my kids weren’t the craziest about it, but they ate it without complaining…well, too much anyway.   I wasn’t too upset at this.  That just meant more leftovers for me to enjoy.  This soup also showed me what an awesome blog friend I have:-)  Aimee from Shugary Sweets was passing through my neighborhood and we decided to meet up for lunch.  I sent her a text and asked if she would be totally offended if I served her leftovers:-)  Now I wouldn’t just serve anyone leftovers, but she and I have really developed an awesome friendship both online and in real life, and I knew how much she liked pumpkin too.  It’s a sign of true friend when they still come visit you, even if all they are getting served is leftovers:-)  Just for the record, I did make her some awesome Coconut Pudding cookies too.  I must have felt really guilty for the leftovers!!!

      That’s about what happened in my family. They kids picked at their one bowl, so I had pumpkin soup for like 4 days to myself. Not a bad thing at all:-)

      You are so right…every time I think of pumpkin soup, I think about our week there which is something I will never forget.
