A hug in a bowl

I came back from the coast today and after three fun-filled days with my girlfriends I was pleasantly relaxed but also completely wiped. Cooking did not sound good to me. I was just too pooped.

My dear husband jumped at the opportunity to control the kitchen so he whipped up a super comforting pot of butternut squash soup! I felt like a lucky girl. Here’s the basic recipe that he followed…here.

He’s not one to stick to a recipe so he took it up a notch by grilling the butternut squash, adding 3 cloves of minced fresh garlic, a dollop of sour cream and a splash of 1/2 and 1/2. To really give it an extra ounce of deliciousness he sprinkled in some aged cheddar cheese.

For dunking (cuz he knows I’m a total dunker) he toasted some fresh sourdough bread smeared with garlic butter…

I was in heaven.  It’s good to be home.
