butternutsquash soup Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Are you planning your Thanksgiving menu if you are hosting? You should be! This is a delicious soup to serve before your meal while everyone is waiting for turkey! Make this ahead and freeze it or make it a few days ahead and warm up on the stove, either way it will still be delicious. Butternut squash and nutmeg give you the flavors of fall and looks too!

I love all soups and you can make this so easily and the best part is there are not a million ingredients! This is a rather simple version but you could add apple another type of squash or even cream to make it richer. Watch how much stock you add to ensure your soup is not too thin.
