Pumpkin-Fried Apple Soup with Leeks and Bacon

posted on: Friday, November 13, 2009

Pumpkin soup is perfect for Fall. Apples are perfect for Fall. Leeks and bacon are perfect with anything. This soup is perfect. I don't usually brag but what can I say, I fried apples in bacon grease and discovered a flavor I never knew could exist. If bragging pisses you off be of comfort because at this rate (eating ridiculous amount of fat) I'll probably be dead by the time I turn 30.

until then...
bring on the bacon.
and the [fried] apples.
