Butternut Squash Soup


Thanksgiving week is here.  Somehow it snuck up on me this year.  One thing I’m thankful for is that my family does not like to mess with the menu.  So that makes it easy for my sister and I, because there’s really no planning, we know the menu like the back of our hand.   Try new recipes on Thanksgiving?  Are you crazy?  We like what we like and we don’t really want any surprises.  Over the years a few new recipes have snuck in.

I’m thinking this Roasted Butternut Squash Soup recipe might need to sneak in.

I love butternut squash, especially roasted!

The best thing about this soup is it can be made two days ahead of time and warmed up.  What better side dish for Thanksgiving Day than one that can be gotten out of the way two days in advance.

My littlest told me that this soup tastes like Thanksgiving in a bowl!  Well that just sealed the deal right there. A new side dish will be brought up for discussion.  The thing is when we add a new side to our Thanksgiving Day table we never ever drop one. These are some tough decisions folks….seriously.  We have a problem Houston.

Does your Thanksgiving menu change from year to year or does it stay the same?




Happy Thanksgiving! XOX, Sheila

    I lol’d at the set menu for Thanksgiving. With no family of my own within 10,000 miles, I’m the only decider on what we have for dinner. We’ll be having a full complement of 10 people at the table and they’ll get to eat what I like. 🙂 There will be one other American at the table but I have no idea what she likes so she’s lumped in with the others. Maybe we should have this soup too!

    This definitely looks like my kind of soup, I love butternut squash and I like pretty much any veggie roasted and turned into soup. The fresh sage is a nice touch, too.
