Pumpkin Soup

This would be a great soup to serve on Thanksgiving prior to the meal. Instead of having lots of appetizers, you could offer your guests a nice mug of soup to sip on while they socialize and wait for the big meal. Soup helps to take the edge off the hunger without filling up on too many calories.
