If I could capture the smell of the house right now, and pack it in a box, tie it with a bow, and put it on your doorstep……..I would! This butternut squash soup smells THAT good y’all!

I wish that I had invited someone over for dinner…….because they would think that I am so the Pioneer Woman….err LCValley woman;). But no one is coming for dinner, and Chase is on call, so a blog post will have to do.

Cook over medium heat until the apples are tender. Here is where the house starts to smell like heaven.

Here I took a break to feed this one a pretzel snack;). But a glass of wine, or a browse through Instagram works too!

Next purée the soup in a blender. (Do this in small batches).
