Soup for One
While Jon's away, I haven't paid much attention to meals. But last night I got HUNGRY-FEED ME- and spotted the butternut squash. I googled some recipes, switched things around, and had a delicious soup. I'll post it here so I'll remember how I did it next time, which just might be tonight!
Split a butternut squash lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, give them to the chickens. Brush both halves with melted butter, and sprinkle garlic salt too. Roast at 400 degrees flat side down for around 1/2 hour, until soft.
Scoop out the insides into a pan without burning yourself. Add chicken broth-- my squash was small so I only used half a can. Add a TB or two of honey, and curry powder. Now our curry powder is rather old so I added 2 or 3 TBs. Stir it together, then dump in a blender or Cuisinart and hope it doesn't spit out the top (put a pot holder over it.) Add a little milk-- I'm sure cream would be even better, and reheat. It was most delicious, and easy.
I was sorry there wasn't more. I had a crispy La Brea roll with it. I don't like the bread they sell already baked because it's like playing tug with Molly, but their frozen rolls are quite tasty.
