    [​IMG] thanks, I know I've been gone awhile from you guys.
    My bird breeding projects are taking a HUGE chunk of my time and I have TWO high school seniors; applying to colleges, needing pics, preparing for dances, parties and games, piano lessons, voice lessons, guitar lessons, riding lessons . . . I have invented A LOT of new crock pot recipes lol!

    Katy, I think I love you....

    I grew cooking pumkins this year (Rouge Vin d'Etampes) and they provide a LOT of flesh for the size.

    I'm not a big pumpkin pie fan so have been looking for different things to do.

    This soup not only sounds yumalicious & has some of my favorite things (bacon! black beans!!gorgonzola!!!) but it cooks in a CROCKPOT!!!!!!!!

    I don't use a lot of cream but would subbing 1/2&12 or whole milk work?

    sure you could even leave it out to be non dairy, it just makes it really velvety.
