Pumpkin Bisque Recipe - Perfect for Fall

Today I am linking up with Sweet Stella's and Baby Shmizz for their weekly blog hop called; She Works Hard For The Money (SWH4T$). 

 One way that Jeremy and I have tried really hard to save money is by meal planning. I have posted about this before a couple other times and I am proud to say we are still doing this! We sit down every Sunday or Monday and make a plan for our meals for the next week. So far we have tried about 4 new recipes too which has made the new process a lot more fun! My goal (on not busy weeks) is to try 1 new recipe a week. 

 This week we tried a yummy Pumpkin Bisque. Something that worked perfect for our first measurable snow storm yesterday! The smell of pumpkin warmed the house. Yum!

 Pumpkin Bisque Recipe

 Ingredients -
 ~30 ounces of canned pumpkin 
~30 ounces of chicken stock
 ~3 TBSP of Butter 
~1/2 cup of chopped onions
 ~1/2 tsp of Thyme
 ~2 bay leaves
 ~2 TBSP of Basil
 ~1 cup of milk 
~1 cup of heavy cream

 In a large pot - Saute onions, Basil, bay leaves, and Thyme with the butter until the onions are translucent. 
Add pumpkin and chicken stock. 
 Bring to a simmer. 
 Add the milk and cream to the pot. Continuously stir for 15 minutes. 
Add salt and pepper for taste. 
 After 15 minutes - Serve! 

 This was an easy and very cheap meal. We served with yummy artisan bread. 
 1 pot of bisque makes about 6 servings.

Enjoy!!  Happy Fall!!!
