One of my favorite fall soups is Butternut Squash Soup – however, I have to confess, I never made it from scratch before. I used to buy it ready made, whether it’s a soup starter from a fancy kitchen store or in tall soup carton at my local grocery store.
The other day, I was picking up some veggies at my local Whole Paychex and I spotted the butternut squash on sale and thought, hmmmmm…. It wasn’t my intention to make soup at first – I thought perhaps I might roast it for a side dish or something, but late one night, it hit me, why not make butternut squash soup from scratch….
