Recipe: Butternut Squash Soup
Doesn't that look pretty? And fall-ish?
All the rain last week put me in a soup frame of mind. Fall is here, so we all know that it was inevitable. Rain, cold, soup. It's how I roll. And I roll butternut squash soup. Maybe it's because I resemble one right now...
I love butternut squash, but I do hate to peel and chop them. I'm totally lazy. Like, for real. So I did what any lazy cook would do and I headed to Wegmans. They have already peeled and chopped butternut squash, which I know you think is lazy and expensive, but really, not so much on the expensive part. Of course it's a tiny bit more than buying the whole squash, but really, we all have our vices. Don't judge. ;)
Just like last week, this is a recipe I wrote for the lovely folks over at Chesapeake Family Magazine. You'll need to click through here (yes, I know it's annoying, but come on...one click) for the recipe, but it's simple, and easy, and dare I say....healthy. Plus, it's way better than my pic above would let you think. Want to make it more awesome? Peel and chop a sweet apple (like a Gala) and toss it in the pot with the squash. Yum!
Next week...Panko-Parmesan Pork Chops.
