I've been wanting to try butternut sqaush soup. As you may recall, I'm not always good at making things when they make sense. It may be the wrong season. Or something that makes the house hot when it's already 80 degrees. I did the latter, again, yesterday - but in my defense, it is the right season this time. It's not my fault that we're having unseasonably warm weather!

The recipe I used was great - and I did pretty much exactly what I was supposed to, so won't re-write it here. But I highly recommend it! My only notes are:

  • I added some red pepper flakes to the soup
  • you probably don't need the fresh thyme - it's just a garnish
  • it was really thick, but not in a bad way. I may add some more chicken broth to make it a little more soupy next time.

So, I'm interested... as we approach the colder weather, how do you keep warm? Favorite soups? Hotdishes? Comment and let me know!


  1. Yummy! I will give it try as it gets colder.

  2. I want to try this but I never have fresh ginger on hand or coconut milk (can you buy it in a can and is it necessary???? Mother

  3. Mom - you can buy coconut milk canned; I found it, I think, where the asian foods were in the store.
