Butternut Squash Soup

The storms crossed the country  last week and even came down my way in Florida.  It wasn’t really cold but a little cooler with rain.  I am craving a hot pot of soup.  This is a great, hearty soup for autumn through spring. When you need something warm to drink while you snuggle in a blanket, put a pot on and dinner is ready very quickly.

If you hate fighting a hard-shelled butternut squash, check out the packs of frozen organic cubed butternut squash at Aldi.  Inexpensive and easy on my arthritis – use 3 packs for the soup.  Chop some veggies, saute and then simmer.  Within one hour, you have a thick and tasty soup filled with nutrition.

  1. I love butternut squash soup and I’m so glad they sell the squash already chopped. I think I could kill myself actually taking a knife to the real thing! Thanks for this one.

    1. Did I ever tell you about the last time I tried to cut one in two? My knife got stuck in the middle of the butternut squash. I had to call Vickie next door and ask her to come save me!

  2. 5 stars
    This is a great easy fall soup recipe. I do love shopping at Aldi and your tip about the frozen butternut will be useful. Thanks.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
