Butternut Squash Soup

Super Bowl Sunday dinner option … butternut squash soup with toasted bread and a salad.

Squash soup is another one of those transportive dishes that reminds me of camping in Southern Ohio with friends a few years ago for Halloween. Open fires, a bunch of friends making a coopoerative set of dinners at night and canoing during the day. Good food for good times.
