Cheeseburger Soup - gluten free

There is a bit more crispness in the air these days and I would much rather be snuggled up in a blanket and watch all the lifetime movies a day can handle.
But lets face it
its not going to happen.
My days consist of browsing Pinterest to find the latest organizing fab and
of course a simple no calorie Starbucks drink.
Or cleaning.
and cooking.
and baking.
I do have my cleaning a bit more organized (thanks to pinterest!) I'll share about that later.

seems that pumpkin is all the crave these days and I have a smashing recipe that I found that is AMAZING.
But for today I'm cooking up one of our all time family favorite
