Butternut Squash Soup

After watching Food, Inc. over the holiday break, Jay and I have become very committed to buying most of our produce and meat from our local Farmers' Market. We have a weekly Farmers' Market just blocks away, so it's hard to admit that we don't visit it nearly as much as we should!

Visiting the Farmers' Market is such a great way to truly know what is in season. Just this past weekend, I was surprised to find butternut squash at the market. I typically think of butternut squash as more of a fall season item, something that appears around Thanksgiving. But I suppose it must be in season if the Farmers' Market is selling it, right?

Since I found the squash, I couldn't' resist the opportunity to make some soup! I found a really simple recipe here on the Sweet Fine Day blog. The recipe calls for apples, which I didn't use this time around, but it sounds like an interesting addition.

The recipe makes 4-6 servings, so it's a good one to make on a Sunday evening and eat throughout the week! Enjoy!
