I feel like serving up a big bowl of soup today. Butternut Squash Soup, that is. Lucky YOU! There’s just something about Butternut Squash + Soup in October. Amirite or am I SO right? Trick question – you’d be correct either way.

Wazzzz up, my friends?? How about them temps? I’m wet and frozen. I hate going outside, I miss summer, I hate the wind, I miss my flip flops.

I am keeping calm by reminding myself of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and NOT about the cold days in between.

Cozying up to that bowl above is also a huge PLUS that comes with the cold seasons. Look at that creaminessssss! And there’s no cream IN it! It’s just the silky, creamy texture of a cooked, blended, and deliciousized butternut squash.

This fall butternut squash soup is straight out of my dreams. It is so absolutely fantastic and it’s been so hard to keep it a secret because of the incredible flavor this big bowl is going to bring you. It’s unreal.

  1. Very good flavor. Perfect for a fall night. Did home made croutons and shaved Parmesan on top. Awesome.
