We tried this new soup last week and it was a huge hit. (Even Colby liked it! and normally he won't touch squash.) They liked it so much we are having it again tonight. So for all you squash lovers out there....

Butternut Squash Soup
3lbs. unpeeled butternut squash, halved and seeded
2lrg. onions
1small garlic bulb
1/4 c. olive oil
2 t. thyme
3 c. chicken broth
1/2c. whipping cream
3t. parsley
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Cut squash into large pieces. Place cut side up in baking pan. Cut onion into fourths and place in baking pan. Then add one peeled garlic bulb. Brush lightly with oil; Sprinkle with thyme. Cover tightly and bake at 350 for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until veggies are tender. Remove peel from squash. Combine veggies, broth and cream in small batches in a blender or food processor until smooth; transfer to sauce pan. Add parsley, salt and pepper: heat through do not boil.

This will be great! We got a butternut squash from grandma & grandpa last week and I wasn't quite sure what to do with the whole thing. Speaking of we saw Taylor last week while visiting and me and Marc were amazed at how well behaved that little boy is. We talked for awhile and he didn't make one peep he just went on amusing himself. You must be a great mom thats what we decided!

I will have to give that a try. You do have the best recipes. I still use a few you gave me like 9 years ago when me and Debbi came to visit you.
