Update on the life:

  • Sorry for no TGIF post this week.  We’re picking up our new puppy, GINO!, tonight.  He’s an 8 week old golden retriever, weighing a hefty 13 pounds, and I’m busy puppy-proofing the apartment today.  Stay tuned for Gino Pupdates!
  • I was under the weather yesterday and my local Urgent Care patched me right up.  I had matzo ball soup from the delicatessen for lunch (yum) and LUCKILY had this butternut squash soup in my pantry that I was going to try and be inventive with for dinner.
  • While I made this gourmet squash soup, Dan preferred Taco Bell.  Full disclosure – I had him get me a deluxe soft taco.
  • Do yourself a favority favor and make this IMMEDIATELY.
  • Side note – anything I add ancho chili peppers to is immediately better.  It’s got a spicy punch behind it, so go lightly if you’re scardy of the spice!
  • If I was overzealous, I would have made some cornbread croutons to put on top of this for a little more crunch!  If you’ve got spare cornbread laying around (Who has spare cornbread laying around…?), then go for it!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!  Have fun carving pumpies, making Halloween costumes, and making delicious fall meals like this one!
