It seems its been a few weeks since I shared any recipes. I’ve still been cooking, just not taking pictures of any of it ūüėČ Just eating it instead. Today I’m sharing a soup I made up a few weeks ago over the Christmas holidays.

I grew a lot of these squash in my garden this year and Ive still got them hanging around in my cold room. They make a lovely soup on the cold days of winter.
