Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup 023Yum!  Yes, yet another soup.  That’s what I have always maintained I make a lot of soup.  I love it and it is ssoo good for you.  It is quick to make, delicious without any effort.  If you are smart you will make enough to last you 3-4 days.  That way in a pinch you have a meal without any effort.  No not leftovers!  Soup is always, always better the day after you make it.  More flavor.  So how can that possibly be leftovers?

If you have the room in a freezer, then at the end of the summer you could load up on veggies like this squash, freeze it and your good to go for the winter months.  So really it is very reasonable in cost to make.  Not only can you freeze the veggies, you can also once made the soup freeze it and have soup whenever you want already made.  A great time saver if done this way.
