On Saturday while I was at work at the library, Denise and Terry were talking about making soup in a crockpot. That idea intrigued me and since I’ve been cooking a bit, I decided to look at gluten and dairy free soup recipes. I found a recipe for GF and Dairy Free butternut squash soup. Sounded good to me!
When I arrived in Philadelphia, I headed to the Farmers Market for vegetables and apples. I wanted fresh and let me tell you, I’ve never really been to a farmers market and assumed it would be cheaper than a grocery store. Some things are, but others aren’t. The squash was $2.99/pound, where they are $2.99 each at Trader Joe’s. Live and learn. The Rittenhouse Farmers Market was crowded and I felt like a kid in a candy store. I also found a GF booth and found things I haven’t had since the diagnosis like dinner rolls and thumb print cookies.
Sunday was cook day. Mom helped cut the butternut squash and after it cooked for 6 hours, she was the one who blended it together. We bonded in the kitchen and that was really nice.
Here is the recipe I used. Butternut Squash Soup recipe
