This recpie for Creamy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe is one of our favorites.I love all the members of the squash/pumpkin family and I have a great collection of squash soup recipes.  They are one of my favorite chilly weather foods. The bright color, the texture, everything about squash screams warmth and comfort to me.  Over the weekend we had two miserable, grey, chilly, rainy days…..those days that just chill you right down to the bone! So come Sunday night Bill and I were ready for a warming bowl of soup. I grabbed one of the Butternut Squash that we had harvested from the garden and got a pot of soup simmering to lift our spirits.

    This looks divine — I like that you used half and half instead of heavy cream, so I’ll be adding this creamy butternut squash soup to my meal plan next week. Thank you so much for sharing this at The Mommy Monday Blog Hop – that’s how I found you! :)

      Not sure where you are located but butternut squash takes a long growing season. Here in northern Maine, to have a successful harvest we start seedlings inside in mid-March. Because we have very late frosts, we can’t put any tender plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, or pumpkins in the ground until the end of May. And we have our first fall killing frost in the third or fourth week of September. So that’s our squash growing season, and you can judge by your locale what yours would be. I love butternut squash because they store well and taste so good. This morning here in Maine we have beautiful fall foliage and the first snowcap on Mount Katahdin. It snowed an inch here on Saturday but it has all melted away now here in the lower elevations. I won’t be doing any gardening for a few months. It’s time to put our gardens to bed.
