Some Soup Recipes For Your Pumpkin Soup Bowls

Thanks to everyone who came to visit us last night at the Anderson Seed Ladies Night Out.  There were lots of fun things to do and look at, and thanks to Mark and Ronnette Anderson for being our hosts.  Through the rest of the month of Oct. we'll be making our famous Pumpkin Soup Bowls.  They're not made out of pumpkin, but shaped and colored like pumpkin.  Dang cute!  Here are two soup recipes that we sampled last night at the Ladies Night.  Both would work perfectly in a Great Harvest Pumpkin Soup Bowl.  Enjoy!

Zuppa Tuscana

1 lb. Italian sausage browned and drained
1 onion (cook with sausage)
2 clove garlic (cook with sausage)
6 c. water
6 bouillon cubes
2 Russet Potatoes sliced
2 c. shredded kale
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 c. cream

Bring all ingredients to a boil except for the cream.  Simmer until potatoes are tender.  Add cream and top with Parmesan Cheese.  It’s even better the second day.

Wild Rice Soup

1 package Long Grain and Wild Rice mix cooked according to directions.  I used Rice a Roni brand.

2 T. butter
1 onion chopped
1 package sliced mushrooms
1 c. carrots julienned or sliced
1 c. celery chopped
Saute these  ingredients together until soft.
1/4-1/2 lb of bacon crisped and chopped 
3 cans Cream of Potato Soup
1 qt. Milk or Half and Half
1/2 lb. Velveeta

Put everything in a crock pot and let cook for 1-2 hours.  If it gets too bubbly turn to low.  The cream will curdle.  Thin with more milk if you want it a little thinner.

Mother's Day Sugar Cookies

These babies are as good as they look.  Just like your Muther I hope:)  I believe in my very unbiased opinion that we have the yummiest sugar cookies at Great Harvest.  Now I know there is a debate among sugar cookie eater as to the best kind.  Some like them puffy, and thick, others like them thin and crisp, while many like them soft and chewy.  I fall in the thin and crisp category, but no one else at the bakery has similar thinking.  Therefore I will usually eat all the crispy cookies, and save the others for our customers.  I like taking one for the team!

Come on down and give your Muther a cookie, or a gift basket, or a loaf or two.  She'll love your stinking guts for that!

Red Velvet Love Cakes

How about a new addition to the bakery sweets lineup. Cupcakes! A few of the bakeries in Utah are doing them now and that's all James needed to hear to finally give in to my requests. I've wanted to make cupcakes for years now, but James just never quite got around to it. But if another Great Harvest is doing then by all means it must be important:)

We decided since it's Valentine season we'd start with some Red Velvet Love Cakes. A moist homemade cupcake with yummy cream cheese frosting. It's got all the little high school girls squealing. Come on over to the bakery and try one. They won't last long, but the next cupcake is going to knock your socks off.
