Jack-o-Lantern Soup for Halloween

Jack-o-Lantern Soup is essentially pumpkin soup. Don’t even try to start with a big pumpkin from the market; lots of work for very little gain. Make it easy on yourself – use canned pumpkin. (But read the labels. Make sure you buy just plain canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling, which has added sugar and sweet spices. Not the taste you want in soup.) Add sweet potatoes for vivacious color and extra nutrition. Make a big batch of soup and divide it in half; keep it simple for kids, more complex for the adults.
