Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup

The first time I had Butternut Squash soup was in England’s Lake District. It was so delicious, I had to find a recipe to try at home. I usually cook the squash in the microwave and assemble the rest of the ingredients in a Dutch oven. Here’s a recipe I adapted from Family Circle magazine using roasted vegetables.

    We’re on the same wave length with the Lake District and now butternut squash soup. Just made some today — my first time :). Didn’t roast the vegetables though. It’s so delicious.

      How funny! That was when we visited Wordsworth’s house in 1989 – Sept. 21 to be exact as I just found the entry in an old travel diary of mine! My handwriting was a lot better back then. We first had squash soup at Auntie’s Tea Room in Windemere!
