I love to cook. I like to look at several recipes of the same dish and then come up with my own version. I wanted to share a recent recipe that seemed to be a hit with those who tried it. It is fairly easy, except for peeling the Butternut Squash. Don't be afraid to try it, because the combination of apples and squash sound weird as they really do go together very nice. This dish would be a nice starter for Thanksgiving dinner.

Apple Butternut Squash Soup

1 medium onion chopped
3 stalks celery chopped
2 carrots chopped
3 to 4 apples cored, peeled and chopped
1 large butternut squash peeled and chopped
4 to 6 cups of vegetable or chicken broth (I used canned)
Dash nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Dash ground cloves (optional)
1 cup light cream

Put all ingredients (except cream) into large stock pot. Boil until vegetables are soft. Use a hand blender to liquify soup. Once soup is to desired consistency add cream slowly while stiring soup. Soup is ready to serve.

If you don't have a hand blender, you can use a regular blender, it will just be a bit messier.

If you try it, I would love to hear your thoughts, since this was something I made up on my own (well sort of).

Sounds interesting, I'll have to try it since I'm always looking for something to do with those butternut squashes.

MMM! That does sound good! Mark loves cooking and experimenting, so I think he would really love to try this recipe. He made a pumpkin and mushroom soup last year that was wonderful! :)
