Fact: I suceeded in eating a 3 lb. butternut squash all by myself over the course of 5 days.
You see … I made soup. I’m normally very intimidated by new recipes, especially if they involve ingredients I’m not familiar with — such as a butternut squash. But when I saw this, I knew it had to happen.

Looking at this picture makes me so hungry.
It’s hearty, orange-colored, healthy bliss in a bowl. Perfect for wintry days. Husband turned up his nose, but he did help me peel and chop up the squash. I didn’t offer it to my Toddler because it’s really spicy. So … I ate it. All of it. And it was awesome.
