You know it’s getting cooler outside when I start sharing soup recipes. Thai Butternut Soup has an enormous amount of substance to it. Grain and Dairy free, it fits into many special diets or even for those that aren’t following any certain protocol . Butternut Soup can be made to have a variety of flavors, I like this one because of the zing it carries onto your palate. Nothing like a cup full on a chilly day for lunch. The changing of the leaves and the smell of rain or smoke from the fireplace gives us all the more reason for a pleasing warm bowl of soup. Recently I had a friend that was on a very bland diet, nothing spicy or acidic. So I made her this soup and left out the green chilies and orange juice and it was still amazing and full of healthy ingredients of which she needed.
Now that the kids are in school, or maybe you’re in school, or you’re doing the same old routine and all that changed is the season, it’s time to change-up your menu. Do you ever get stuck in a rut and fix the same old thing time and time again? I know I can get swamped and seem to burrow down in the trenches, and not want to try anything new. Although it’s tough to break away from our summer favorites like Asian Sesame Salad or your favorite spinach salad with Rosemary Balsamic Dressing, it’s time.

I love when the seasons change and therefore the fruits and vegetables we have access to change also.
