Squash Soup


I don't often share recipes on here... it's not really my thing, and there are so many awesome cooking blogs out there, you hardly need me to add my 2 cents on food! If anything, my husband should have a food blog, not me!

But, after getting some squash from my parents' garden this Fall, I thought I would make some soup. I had some in a restaurant awhile ago, and it was so good. So, I Googled "Butternut Squash Soup." I am not sure what kind of squash this was, but I figured it would do even if it wasn't an official Butternut!!

I'll put the link to the recipe I used below. I changed a few things... I used Onion soup mix instead of the chicken stock, and I used green onions instead of a regular onion. I also added some corn. Other than that, I think it was pretty much the same. I could have used a bunch more baby carrots, but I only had a few, that's why my picture isn't quite as lusciously orange as the one on the link. Before I put the squash cubes in the pot, I cut it in half, took out the seeds, then put the halves in a big bowl with a cup of water and microwaved it for 9 minutes. This softened it up really well, and then I was able to peel it with no trouble at all. Steve and Elise loved it... the boys endured it, but I think it was more the thought of squash soup that did them in, rather than the taste!
