Hey! I’m not gonna dazzle you guys with words today. At this time I simply have none. I have tried but all I want to do is have another bowl of this creamy, warming, comforting, filling bowl of golden goodness. I thought about naming this recipe the golden pumpkin bowl but Creamy Curry Butternut Squash Soup sounds just perfect.
It warmed be from the inside out. I felt like I had a glow. I know those are haughty words for this humble soup. But still 100 perfect true. I wanted to create a info graphic to illustrate that I literally mean I felt this soup radiate through my body down to my very bones. It was that legit.
Then to make a serious situation absolutely legit I topped with Jade’s curry croutons. The croutons added the right amount of crunch and tang to the soup.
I started this summer with one goal. To bring the kids to the pool as much aspkossible I wanted to get a good tan situation going. I wanted to start the summer off Caramel add ended it with a toasted coconut tan.
I met my goal, partially because I did make it to the pool a lot but also this Florida sun has not been kind. It was 95 degrees today. Like why? I mean seriously why? WHY IS IT SO HOT? But even with the sun being so extra- I had a great day with the kids. Kids have a way of not caring if you are sad or tired.
So I told you guys that Florida has what might be the most sporadic weather on this earth. In the mornings hot then in the afternoons it’s still hot… by mid-afternoon it is thunder-storming and the evenings are humid. Don’t get me wrong I love it… sometimes. But I am honestly so looking forward to fall. I can’t wait for the weather to turn and the temp to drop.
Which might be why I HAD to make this soup. Oddly I drink a lot of soups in the summer. I know what you are thinking- soups are a fall/winter food. I know i’m backwards with almost everything. But hear me out- It rains almost every day here. And rainy weather just automatically scream soup to me. Weird right? But hey I’m cool with me.
And thank you guys for all your kind words. You guys really rock my world. I really do hope you guys enjoy this absolutely comforting soup as much as we did. This recipe is great for large crowds or small dinner ideas.
Peace and love,
