Last night, I made the tastiest butternut squash soup for dinner! While browsing the grocery store, I eyeballed the big stack of butternut squash and instantly had a craving for soup. Down in the south, we have this thing called “fake fall” that happens every August. There’s a week of chilly and rainy weather, then it disappears, and the humid summer temps are back. Well, it’s been like that this past week. I’m not jumping to any fall behavior yet, but I made an exception for a butternut squash soup. Last year, I laid on the couch with morning sickness all fall, so this year I’m making up for it, but waiting until mid-September at least! I can’t wait to take my boy to all the pumpkin patches and do all the fall things!
I will be adding this recipe to my go-tos from now on! I can’t believe how fast and easy it was to make, and OMG, was it delicious. I just had my second bowl for lunch today with a turkey sandwich on the side. I know it’ll be even better on a cold Fall day! I plan to make this soup with mini sandwiches when picnic weather returns.
