Cream of Pumpkin Soup, Member frresh

I made this recipe as written. But I had 2 large baked sweet potatoes in my fridge. So I used them instead, and followed the recipe exactly...until it came to the Evaporated Milk, I didnt have skim so I only used less than half of the can, it just didnt need it the rest. It was delicious. Added salt and pepper to enhance the flavor a bit. My hubby loved it and asked f he could finish the remainder. At this calorie level he can!! I cant wait to make it again, it was so fast and easy and cheap!
