OOOHH... It's Cold Outside!!!

Here in Texas it has turned REALLY cold!!! To still have snow on the ground in places, when the snow fell 4 days ago is very unusual.
Cold weather calls for soup ....... so dinner last night included soup:-)
I have a recipe for Creamy Butternut Soup, that I found many years ago when I was just married ...... it still rates as my all time favorite soup ...... creamy, yummy and easy.
Here's the recipe - why don't you give it a try!!!

- 40ml butter
- 1 medium onion - chopped
- Pinch of cumin
- 300ml chicken stock
- 2lbs butternut - peeled and cut into cubes
- 15ml lemon juice
- 125ml cream

- Melt butter, add chopped onions and saute until soft
- Add cumin, and cook while stirring continually for 30 sec
- Add butternut and chicken stock to pot
- Bring to the boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 mins or until butternut is soft
- Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and cream
- Blend in a blender until soup is smooth
- Serve with crusty French Bread
- ENJOY!!!

Hope you're all having fun creating some snowy creations for our swap - I know I am!!!
Keep warm and keep crafting:-)

This sounds really good - I LOVE butternut squash. I have a big pumpkin sitting here and wonder if I could make that same soup, only with the pumpkin instead...I bet that would be good too...I have to try that!

Doris, I've made it with pumpkin too, and it tastes just as good:-)
