  4. Finish butchering the %&$#@! squash.

  7. Return vegetable mixture to the hot broth and stir to blend.
  8. Add a little of the hot soup to the cream in a measuring cup. Then slowly add cream mixture to the hot soup stirring constantly.
  9. Correct the seasoning, adding salt and white pepper if necessary. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a dash of ground nutmeg.
