The temperature yesterday hung around the high 70s and creeped up to 80. Folks had to crank up the AC. That's effed up, winter is effed up, but winter vegetables like squash are fabulous.
I pureed the hell out of this Butternut Squash Soup. This burnt-orangish bowl filler is a sweet-tasting and toasty tribute to another UT loss to A&M and subsequent underwhelming invite to the Holiday Bowl.
What really makes this soup awesome is adding a nice tart, green apple. It works so well with the sweet winter squash.
What doesn’t work in this recipe is onion. I am banishing this bastard veggie from my kitchen this month. Fewer tears. Better breath. Works for me.
