|Butternut Squash soup with Arkansas Black apples and a little Gorgonzola cheese|
So it is fall. Although this is not one of my favorite times of the year, I do love some of the foods that this time of year allows me to start making. It is time for casseroles, roasted veggies, pies, and everything pumpkin but I am especially fond of different types of soup. I love taking time over the weekend to make a different type of soup that I can eat all week. When I come home from a long day of work and I am tired I know that I have some great soup and a glass of wine that will warm my tummy and my spirits. Since I am not a TV watcher, I curl up on the couch, usually with my laptop, and eat and read blogs. LOL!
One thing that a lot of my girlfriends all say, is that they love soup or salad for dinner. It is something to snuggle up with at the end of the day that is light, healthy and does not come with a lot of guilt; no meat and potatoes, if you know what I mean. What girl needs meat and potatoes??? Wink! Wink!
I like to make this for an everyday meal but in the past I made it as a Thanksgiving appetizer and it got rave reviews. I have shared this recipe with a lot of my girlfriends, and family. It is a great low calorie recipe because it has no heavy cream so eat up- you will get lots of Vitamin A.

Garnish with apple slices and Gorgonzola cheese. Or you can add some hot peppers and cilantro. Add fresh herbs. Play around different combinations to get different tastes. Enjoy!
