What a wonderful soup to serve this HOLIDAY SEASON!
While you are busy baking and cooking in preparation for your Thanksgiving feast...it is nice to have a delicious soup already made to serve for one meal that is soul and tummy satisfying!
I baked my squashes ahead of time in preparation for my glorious squash pies (see note) and baked
extra squash for this soup. What is left over...I freeze for later dishes. Christmas is right around the corner! A great soup for the busy holiday season. After reading a couple recipes,I put this one for a delicious tasting
soup...Nancy...11/17/12
