Happy Halloween. My treat for you is this great 'fix it' and 'forget it' soup. It's perfect to make ahead on Halloween Day, and then sit back and enjoy the goblins in the evening. When my kids were little, it was always so stressful to try and think about dinner at the same time that I was trying to get them into costumes and hand out treats at the same time!
We're a big soup family. In fact, our daughter asked for a soup pot and some soup recipes for Christmas so she could carry on the tradition. Here's my latest turkey and vegatable soup (with a twist-it's all in the peppers!). This soup would also be great for some of that extra turkey after Thankgiving. Enjoy!
2 cups cooked turkey breast
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 Anaheim pepper
4 cloves of garlic
satue above in olive oil until al dente'
1 box Chicken Broth
2 cups tomato juice
2 cups water
(1 can garbanzo or black beans, opional)
1 cup frozen or fresh corn
2 tablespoons dill
pinch of red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons of chopped basil
salt and pepper
You could throw in a handful of pasta, but you don't really need it.
Simmer in a large pot, and serve with a tablespoon of Romano Cheese, and a piece of crusty Rye French Bread and enjoy!

I love the look of potato plants this time of year!
This is a scene from a local pumpkin farm. They always decorate this wagon with a different seasonal theme

Happy Halloween Everyone!
