Thanks Nads,I just came here to look for your soup recipe !

Thanks, Nads, this looks delicious!  I just went apple picking on Sunday and came home with 14 lbs of apples and a butternut squash.  This recipe will be perfect for me and since the weather has been cold, soup is just the ticket!

Nads, Thanks again for the recipe. I tried it this weekend and it was delicious!!!

good to hear!

I just tried a similar recipe last night that used a can (14oz) of coconut milk instead of the 1/2 cup of cow's milk.  It added really nice flavour to the soup -- definitely worth trying if you're looking to change it up a bit
