Winter is here!

I love all of the festivities of Christmas, gatherings, lunches & parties but they go by way too fast….it’s almost Christmas!!

I made a few gift items like this cute bulky hat & neckwarmer for my li’l niece – she has a massive head of beautiful curls… I was thrilled it all fit in the hat!

On this first very wet (torrential rain, all day) day of Winter, I made it home and made this simple, hearty soup.

Butternut Squash soup:  It’s Gluten-free and Vegan. It’s simple and easy to make.

1 1/2 bags of frozen Butternut Squash ( I used 6 oz bag of the cubes and 1 bag, 12 oz, of spirals) added it to 4.5 cups of water in saucepan add spices (below) and simmer for an hour.

The soup thickened nicely. One could always add a medium diced white/sweet potato and carrots too, if you like.

Seasonings:

1 t Badia Sazon (can be found in the Latin food aisle). Badia brand does not contain MSG…other brands may.

1/2 t of Granulated garlic powder

1/2 t Salt

1 large Bayleaf

1/2 t Tumeric

1/3 t Black Pepper

Give it a try…enjoy!!
