cream of winter squash soup

One of my net.friends shared this delicious squash recipe. It was good timing too because I’d had an acorn squash sitting on my counter for an embarrassingly long time because I was afraid to try it…lol. The soup turned out great. I just added a bit of garlic salt to even out the taste, but I add garlic salt to most everything so that could just be me.

  1. That… looks amazingly good.

    Even more amazing – I do believe I have everything needed downstairs in the fridge or pantry. Or will in the morning when the chicken broth is done.

    Thanks so much, looks like I know what I’m making for dinner tomorrow!

  2. I’ll have to try this. I, too, have had acorn squash for waaay too long. I didn’t realize that turning orange was an indication that I really should have used them already….
