My friend Mary brought me two beautiful, home grown, organic butternut squashes when she visited from Indiana weekend before last. Today I roasted and made soup with them. It is delicious and even leaving some for tomorrow night, I was able to freeze two more containers of the soup. Yuuuu- uum! I looked at the colors on my stove and realized–it’s autumn–and felt almost giddy with excitement. We are still a little on the warm side here in Lowndesboro, but mornings and evenings are getting cool and it won’t be long till we’ll need jackets at both ends of the day.
