About 5 years ago Kat (my Wife ) and I spent Thanksgiving In West Yellowstone. We were out looking to fine a nice meal, and saw a notice that The Canyon Street Grill, was giving a dinner free to all. Well we didn't expect much,but were we wrong. Slices of fresh Roasted turkey Cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes. Oh yes! and this very good Pumpkin Curry Soup, and Dessert. WE were amassed. We asked form the recipe, but the girl serving us didn't know it, and took our name and address. Three weeks later the cook that made if sent us the recipe. He said it was know secret, he got it from an Evaporated milk can. Her it is. You can make in a sauce or a 12"D.O.

  1. I had never had Pumpkin Soup before and didn't think I would like it. It is very good, and I am a convert to it now.
