Autumn Squash Soup (Panera Copycat) - this is the best fall soup and so easy! Vegetarian and full of butternut squash and pumpkin!

Heeeey guys! I feel like I haven’t talked to you in forever.

I’ve been in a weird funk the past month and haven’t been cooking or blogging or anything.

And then that post I put up Monday was written months ago. Which is why I shared a cole slaw recipe in fall. It’s fine, cole slaw is delicious all year long! Especially with barbecue!

Speaking of, I had the best barbecue over the weekend at Black’s BBQ down in Austin.

I was down there on Friday morning for a work thing and then when it was time to come home and get the kids, I realized I wasn’t ready to be back in Killeen so I grabbed them and we drove back to Austin and had barbecue and ice cream and stayed out way past bedtime.

The brisket was seriously spectacular. And the mac & cheese? Uhhh-mazing.

And then the ice cream was from Spun Ice Cream which I’ve been dying to visit for months. They do the liquid nitrogen thing and I think it is the coolest thing ever. Plus, they use local dairy and only the best ingredients.

I had the horchata ice cream (I’m obsessed with horchata right now) with peanut brittle. So good. And they gave me a punch card which means I now have to stop every time I’m down in Austin.

Right?

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup - this healthy and delicious soup is going to become your fall favorite!

Happy almost Friday!

Are you obsessed with butternut squash right now? I am and it’s weird because butternut squash has never been my thing. I love spaghetti squash, I love acorn squash, but I’ve always been pretty “meh” on butternut.

Mostly because it’s really annoying to peel and cut. Like, the worst.

But you know I’ve been obsessed with Panera’s autumn squash soup for the last month or so and I finally got tired of making the 5 minutes drive and 30 minute drive-thru wait for a cup of soup.

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup - this healthy and delicious soup is going to become your fall favorite!

This Butternut Squash and Apple Soup is so worth peeling and cutting a butternut squash. I’ve always avoided squash soup recipes that included apple because I assumed they’d be too sweet but the apple adds the perfect amount of sweetness in this recipe. Not too sweet at all.

If  you’ve been searching for a good Thanksgiving soup, you should definitely give this one a try! I think this is one pretty much everyone will enjoy!
