Dinner + Pumpkin Pie

I came home today to a clean house full of baking bread smell. Mmmmmmmmmm!!

The source:



Husband was hard at work!

For dinner we had leftover roasted vegetables from our Wednesday night dinner. Potatoes, parsnips, carrots, garlic and squash. We simmered them in Pacific Brand Creamy Roasted Carrot Soup and added 2 cups of fresh broccoli to top it off. Talk about a healthy dinner!





I love these Pacific boxed soups. I haven't been disappointed yet! The butternut squash one is the secret base for my butternut squash and vegetable winter stew, the cashew ginger one is great, and I love the tomato too. They don't have that disgusting onion flavor that most canned soups have. Of course, they're best when you bulk them up with veggies, beans, or pre-cooked meats.

I also had a 2.5 oz hunk of bread, clocking in at 180 calories.



All together:



For dessert, I had about 1/3 cup of pumpkin nuked with some dried fruit and topped with nutmeg, cinnamon and 1 tsp brown sugar. It was gone FAST!

Potato 100
Carrot 25
Soup from box 100
Parsnip 50
Broccoli 35
Bread 180

I was so excited because I saw the Pacific Foods soups are now available in low sodium options! :) Oh, and I totally bought some canned pumpkin at CostCo because I was inspired by all your improvisations for it. Have a great day!
