Hooray for festivities! The good thing about having parents who own a garden is that sometimes when they visit, they bring you free garden goodies–like a few squashes from last season! I’ve had two butternut squashes and an acorn squash on my counter waiting for the opportune moment to cook them, which turned out to be today, Thanksgiving!
This soup is painfully easy to make. Just a few ingredients and poof! A beautiful, warm, autumnal delight. I call this ‘simple’ also because the very few ingredients allow the squash flavor to dominate! This soup is great as an appetizer right before Thanksgiving dinner, or as a light lunch with some crackers. Whatever suits your mood, as long as it’s autumny 🙂
