Butternut Squash Soup

Oh, and it’s super easy to make, too!

Butternut Squash always reminds me of my grandma’s house. Every year on her farm when I was a kid she would have all sorts of gourds and squash everywhere.

She used to always make Butternut Squash soup. Actually she used to make Butternut everything because she made so much she was trying to get rid of!

This is one of those recipes you will make again and again because it is SO SIMPLE. Plus it tastes out of this world. I love the roasted butternut flavor!
