If it’s autumn here it’s all about the squash. I don’t like much about autumn transitions, but the food is amazing. Butternut squash and apples and corn and pumpkin pie are some seasonal favourites. So when I found this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Butternut Squash Soup on Life Made Delicious I was keen to try it. Now, the kids didn’t help much with this one because they were at school when I made it, but Thursday is my Cooking With Kids segment and soups and stews are always a hit with my kids. I anticipate they will give this a try and at least one will enjoy it. I know I did.
This recipe called for Yoplait Source Strawberry yogurt.
