Oh boy, do I like butternut squash soup! Like many butternut squash soups, this one is sweet and also smooth like a baby’s bottom. But this one has a little secret – apple juice! The sweetness of the butternut squash and the tanginess of the apple juice meet in the middle like James Carville and Mary Matalin. Oh, and lest we forget, the curry sneaks up on you and makes you giggle with glee. I also like this soup because I get to use “‘N” in the title which makes me feel like I’m a character in a Charlie Brown special. I would have started a lemonade stand with Linus – Soup ‘N Lemonade – in the movie The Great Local Food Movement Charlie Brown. Oh, that would be a good movie!
