Pureed Squash and Apple Soup
BEFORE WE BEGIN ...
There is a 'variation' to this recipe ... I call it "Cinderella Soup". Why Cinderella? Well, on the most recent go-round of this recipe I had a little pumpkin sitting on the counter. It stared at me. I stared back. I thought, perhaps this pumpkin could join it's cousin the butternut squash in the roasting pan. And TADA Cinderella Soup was born! So, if you're running late for the ball, missing a glass slipper, or have a horse-drawn carriage 'honking' outside your front door, please know, dear reader, that this recipe can bubble along quite nicely in a crock pot while you busy yourself trying to score a dance with Prince Charming. Bibbity-bobbity-BOO!
You will need: sharp knife, cutting board, Y-vegetable peeler (or other peeler … Y is our food processor or blender- up to you, roasting pan, soup pot, measuring cups n spoons, fireplace, glass of red wine and something JAZZY playing in the background … .),
