Soup Comfort Food
I’m not usually one who eats a lot of vegetables, but when one of my friends gifted me with a container of her homemade Butternut Squash Soup I had to give it a try. I’d never tried it before, and one taste and I was hooked!
Rich and nutty, this creamy soup recipe was a winner. Add a dollop of sour cream, some parsley for garnish and a few oyster crackers along with slice of homemade dill bread and you’ll think you were at a New England ski lodge with a view of the the snowy mountain slopes!
This colorful soup will be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table or Christmas dinner too!
