Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

Happy National Herbs and Spices Day! I love nutmeg, it’s one of my favorite spices and I also love butternut squash. You can also add/omit any ingredients to make it to your own preferences. To make it even easier I like to use an oven to stove to table baking dish such as an enameled cast-iron pot.
