Butternut Squash Apple Soup

This recipe is from Simply Recipe's and it is simply delicious (how's that for clever?). I did add more celery and carrots than it called for as well as some olive oil to the butter. I served it with Parmesan croutons (and bread sticks) and it is Fall in a bowl.

  1. I am super excited about this. Kasey made some delicious butternut squash soup while she was here, and it's become my new favorite meal. I'm always up for trying another variation.
