Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

I'm not usually one who eats a lot of vegetables, but when one of my friends gifted me with a container of her homemade Butternut Squash Soup I had to give it a try.  I'd never tried it before, and one taste and I was hooked!

Rich and nutty, this creamy soup recipe was a winner.  Add a dollop of sour cream, some parsley for garnish and a few oyster crackers along with slice of homemade dill bread and you'll think you were at a New England ski lodge with a view of the the snowy mountain slopes!

This colorful soup will be a great addition to your Sunday dinner table, or Holiday dinner too!
