Pumpkin Patch

I can't believe how big my kiddos have gotten. I've been taking Carleigh to the pumpkin patch since she was a baby, and now she's six! Emma wasn't all too keen on the idea of smiling for the camera or even looking in the general direction. She was giving more of a "this is torture" cry. Check out our pictures from our annual trek to the pumpkin patch...

A yummy soup recipe to go along with the fall pictures...

Tomato Basil Soup
2 large cans diced tomatoes with juice
1 14 1/2 ounce can chicken broth or stock
15 (give or take) fresh basil leaves removed from the stem and roughly chopped
1 stick unsalted butter (not margarine) (You can get by with reducing the amount of butter by about half.)
1 cup heavy cream (I used about 1/2 to 3/4 cup, and it was still good.)
pepper to taste

Cook tomatoes with juice in chicken broth for 45 min. Blend the tomato and broth mixture with the basil leaves with a hand blender you can immerse in the pot, or in batches in a blender/food processor. Stir in the butter and cream and pepper to taste. YUM-O!!
