The week of Thanksgiving I am always rushing around; running from grocery to grocery, coffee roaster to bakery. Today I will make the pastry for my pumpkin pies. Tomorrow I will pick up my turkey. I get so busy with the preparation of Thursday's Thanksgiving dinner that Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night dinners are an afterthought. This Cream of Carrot Soup goes together quickly and makes a nice meal when combined with a green salad and a glass of wine, which is exactly how I plan to spend tonight.
