So, soup

Roasted Three Pepper Golden Nugget Squash Soup!

It’s fall. The harvest of pumpkins and squash is in your face at the grocery story. So, soup is on the menu. There’s a Butternut squash sitting on my counter which will be cooked, tossed in the blender with some tasty stuff, and dished up for fall savoring. You probably make pumpkins into pies and jack-o-lanterns, but did you know it makes fabulous soup? What’s your favorite fall soup?

  1. Oh Yummy! We are having soup tonight. Can you smell it simmering on the stove? Or, do you smell the fresh bread baking in the oven? They feed the tummy and warms the soul. Hot soup on an cool evening immediately conjures up feelings of safe, warm environments.

    The table is set with fall theme place mats, sandwich plate, big soup bowls, all the necessary silver, glasses for water and cups for something hot to drink. Some one is building a fire… I think we are ready to sit down. Would you like to join us?

  2. She told me not to use this one set of spoons. She said they were her grandmothers, but I could never remember which ones were which. In the end they were all mangled and crooked with ashen burn marks on the bottom. If either of us could stomach a little soup between nods we had to unbend and wipe the black soot off the bottoms to use them.

  3. “So, soup? Any sandwich? Chips?”
    “Nope,” he replied tight-lipped.
    “Anything to drink today, sir” I said with the effervescence of the pigtailed blonde in the training video.
    He simply shook his head, fingering bills in his wallet, sliding layers of ones from their hiding place.
    Why my father comes here…

  4. Wonderful soup
    Butternut squash and Pumkin
    two of my favorites.
    Potato, corn chowder
    and chili.
    Something every week is prepared
    most of year
    but especially Fall and Winter….
