Dutch Oven?

So, I made this Pumpkin Rosemary Soup last night...
Sound good?
Try it right HERE!!!
and just so you don't have to google "dutch oven" like I did, I'll go ahead and tell you what it is.  A "real" dutch oven happens to be (from Wikipedia)
 A Dutch oven is a thick-walled (usually cast ironcooking pot with a tight-fitting lid. Dutch ovens have been used as cooking vessels for hundreds of years.
but also found on Wikipedia, the only version of a dutch oven that I, personally, was familiar with:
dutch oven is a fart chamber (a contained area of flatus) created by pulling a blanket over some one's head and breaking wind. The phrase is a slang description based on the cooking action of a Dutch oven where food is cooked and steamed inside a closed chamber. Performing a Dutch oven creates an area of foul-odored air in an enclosed space that must be inhaled.[1] This is done as a prank or by accident to one's sleeping partner.[2][3]
I was only familiar with the 2nd dutch over-Trust me, go for the "real" dutch oven for the soup!!
A pan will work, we didn't have a dutch oven.  I also used vegan bacon. 
This soup is SOOOO good, it's seriously worth going to the site and making it!!
We've had the most fabulous week here in Michigan, the sun is out, the temps in the mid to high 60's...Ahhh, if only it would stay this way for the next 3 months!
Have a great weekend and let me know if you try the soup!!
Any other favorite fall recipe's?

I have never tried Pumpkin soup. There are even a few pumpkins left from my garden, might have to give it a try.

That looks lovely, although when I got to the oxymoron that is "vegan bacon" I was brought back to a simpler time when I left God's creatures to graze and roam and not be fed upon. I still don't dig on swine, but I like me some chicken and fish. Not the point. On The Soup, they always make fun of this show called Dutch Oven or something like that. It's this old country dude out in the woods making crap on a dutch oven over a camp fire. It's hilarious to watch and you reminded me that I haven't seen a clip from that in a while. You also reminded me that I wish that it had been easier to be a vegetarian for the 11 years that I was one. Vegan bacon would have really helped a girl out.

the vegan/bacon was actually very good. we aren't vegans but real bacon grosses me out with that thick white fatty edge.. ugh! haha, I love The Soup- where I get all my "news".

Sounds great. Never tried rosemary with pumpkin, only ginger. Interesting.

Ha!!! You will not believe that I blogged this exact same thing once- it was a different recipe but fart chamber and all!

I think we have the same twisted sense of humor.
