Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

This is the time of year that every gardener and farm stand seems to have mountains of squash. When I was little I had no idea what to do with these oddly shaped vegetables, nor did my mom. We sometimes bought them to use as table decorations during the fall, but I never remember my mom even attempting to make squash to eat.

As an adult, however, I have grown to love all varieties of squash, from acorn to Hubbard, and especially butternut. I developed this soup today after picking up some butternut squash from a local farm stand. The recipe is easy and versatile, and makes as little or as much soup as you'd like (see the Notes section in the recipe).

A podcast is in the works -- thanks to the feedback I received, I am revamping things a bit!

"I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date"

OK, so I'm not really late, per se. I've just been off the grid.

I just returned from a fabulously recuperative vacation in not-so-sunny Southern California (Rancho Santa Fe/San Diego area) and am refreshed. I have lots of fun stories to share, and will do so in my next podcast (mid-October).

I'm thinking about revamping my podcast a bit so it's not quite so overwhelming for me to do twice a month. Looking for input, if you have any!

Meanwhile, here's a fabulous photo of the moonset (as opposed to the SUNset) that I took very early in the morning of September 22, 2010. That's my sister's pool in the foreground. Oh, but it was a fantastic and creative two weeks!
