Cooking. I love to cook and for the most part what I make is good! I enjoy my food. But I made something new and it didn’t quite taste great. Butternut Squash Soup. I’m doing a little more cooking with different kinds of squash like spaghetti squash and now butternut squash and soon acorn squash. I never knew all these different types of squash existed! I didn’t like squash as a kid, no matter how much brown sugar Dad put in the mashed up squash. Maybe that’s why it didn’t turn out so good.
I followed the recipe except I had some asparagus so I added that in. Maybe that is what made the difference. Even the fiance didn’t care for it too much and he loves food. After he had it I knew it wasn’t just me! We had a little bit of it and then went out. When I got back I decided to heat it up and add some brown sugar. My Dad put brown sugar in his squash so maybe that will work. Or wait, now that I think about it was it turnip? Either way I didn’t like either vegetable. Ok, back to the soup. I didn’t have a bowl of it, but I did try some on a spoon. It seemed to bring out the taste a little more. It still isn’t a favourite and won’t make it into my personal cookbook. I’m going to have it for lunch today and see if I change my mind, but I highly doubt it.
Maybe if you are a squash loving person you would love the soup! Here is the recipe if you want to try it out:

Today I am going to try making Honey & Orange Glazed Chicken. It looks very tasty.
