Roasted Butternut Soup

Here's an easy way to enjoy winter squash, which is now in season! We are often able to get a big box full of them super cheap as our local farms close up shop for the winter. We enjoy this creamy, comforting and nutritious soup often throughout the winter months. For our readers in the US, this simple, tasty soup would make a nice first course for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday...

The old saying really is true: Heating with wood warms you twice (and by my estimation, 5 times for us in this case)! When you depend on a trusty woodstove to …
