After reading Kristin’s soup post, I’ve been craving soup.  It’s not even hot yet, but the idea of soup is very comforting and soothing. So tonight, we made Ina Garten’s Butternut Squash soup with these ingredients. 

image The condiments are optional and none of them sounded too delish (e.g., diced banana in soup??), so we nixed those.   This is Ina’s picture below, but ours turned out pretty similar in color and consistency from what I can tell.  It will be a great dish when the the weather turns nice.   Additionally, we roasted sweet potatoes with Old Bay seasoning following this recipe.   Don’t these look mouth watering?

PS:  Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!  We enjoyed our lobster/chef costumes very much.  Kitty, not so much...

  1. The costumes look great on you two! Glad they got some use this year. Also, I just had the most amazing butternut squash soup at Brennan's a few weeks ago. My group did a taste-testing and decided it was the best on the menu. Yes, even better than the turtle soup.
