Pumpkin Soup- Thanksgiving

NY is a mess. First Hurricane Sandy, then gas shortages and the Nor'easter. It's hard to think of celebrating anything even Holidays right now. The show must go on. I'm posting my favorite Pumpkin Soup recipe, it's  great dish to drop off to your local food shelter- I'm sure our friends staying in warming shelters can use a cup of cheer. My Pumpkin Soup is a Thanksgiving staple, it's easy, healthy and cheap to make. If you're on a Weight Watchers this is a 2 point soup!
