Food and Wine: Suzie’s Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup Recipe

butternut-squash-soupIt’s COLD out there!! In my endless effort to keep warm, I’ve been concocting different soups. One of my favorites is Butternut Squash.  I’ve always loved Butternut Squash soup. It’s cozy and tasty.  This recipe is so simple, the thing that takes the longest is the prepping and you can even cut that down by buying pre-cut vegetables. It’s healthy and low in fat.

Although having someone to cuddle up with to keep warm is always the preferred choice, soup comes a close second.  You DO need energy for navigating the ever so challenging dating world.  Maybe invite someone over to share your soup … maybe they’ll even offer you a cozy cuddle too! See? See? Always find opportunities to connect using what you’ve got.

I always like Viognier or Chardonnay wine with Butternut Squash anything, so it certainly works here.  Now what are you waiting for? MAKE THE SOUP!!
