1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup heavy whipping cream

In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in broth, pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, pepper and nutmeg; bring to a boil.Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add cream; cook for 2 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.

    Thanks!! Wish I could take personal credit for all my images 🙂 one day…one day.

    My day job (the one that pays for this hobby) is in magazine publishing. I’m trying to make my baby here – my bog as polished as I can with my limited resources. Your comment really means a lot. Warms my heart.
