Maple Butternut Squash Soup

Maple Butternut Squash Soup

I guess I’ve been on a bit of a soup kick lately.  We really have been eating more than soup around here!  In fact yesterday we ate chili.  See, not soup!

Yesterday we went to the Fall Festival at my daughter’s school.  As part of the festivities there was a chili cook off.  All week I worked on a pumpkin chili recipe that I think turned out great.  Unfortunately, I didn’t win the cook off but I think the recipe is still a winner so I am going to share it with you next week.  And then we will take a break from soups, stews, chili, etc.  I promise!  November 12-17 I am going to be featuring some great recipes for Thanksgiving that you won’t want to miss.

But first some butternut squash soup.  This is another soup that I made in my Blendtec but you can easily make it stovetop as well.  I give you directions for both ways.
