Butternut Squash Soup



I have just started cooking with Butternut Squash and I will admit that I intended to make a ravioli but I got lazy and made this soup instead.  I was glad that I did-it was a lovely supper soup and the left overs were good both cold and hot.  It will become one of my soup staples. 


Cook 2 chopped onions in 2 T of butter until soft (about 5 mins.)  Add 3 c peeled, seeded and cubed butternut squash and 1 1/2 c cubed potatoes.  Pour in chicken stock until veggies are completely submerged (about 3 c).  Add 1 t paprika and set to a boil.  Lower and simmer about 35 mins. until veggies are soft to the fork.  Pour the soup into a blender and process until smooth.  Return the soup to the pan and stir in 1/2 c milk.  Adjust s&p and reheat on low. 


I’m the kind of person who is too transparent.  When someone says “Oh, I love that purse”  I have to tell them that it is a Kate Spade but I picked it up at my favourite second hand store for $3.99….why do I do that?!  So just in case you think that foodies don’t have food accidents-this is a pic of my soup that I left on low and went back to my computer to get some more work done.  I had an explosion of butternut squash!

    I love the slightly sweet and nutty flavour of butternut squash. It is one of the best next to spaghetti squash:D

    I think we get it from Dad. I remember he was selling one of the cars, which had been a really good car, but dad told the guy every single thing that had ever gone wrong with the car, even if it had only happened once. Is there such a think as being to honest? After all, who are we really trying to impress?
