butternut squash soup smells like the holidays

Thanksgiving menus do not include soup – at least in my house πŸ™‚

Times are changing. Tastes are changing. Thanksgiving is changing.

Collecting lots of holiday recipes on Pinterest. Decided to try the butternut squash soup early. So easy and the ingredients include curry (I used 2t) and an apple πŸ™‚

I am always so thankful when a recipe tastes as great as the blog pictures! Β I am talking about the pictures on hungryhealthygirl πŸ˜‰ not mine! Β  Her pictures are beautiful. Β Really the taste is just so good! Β I prefer a thicker soup so I blended it just a little but you can adjust to whatever thickness you like.

All around great fun with this recipe that smells and tastes like the holidays!

Butternut Squash Soup will be served on Thanksgiving!

Hope you have a really nice week πŸ™‚

thai peanut pasta

Hi!

Hope you had an enjoyable weekend πŸ™‚

Skip down to the picture and recipe suggestion if you are not interested in my ramblings tonight. No offense will be taken…because how would I know anyway πŸ™‚

Going vegan is a way for me to be – at peace, a kinder person, compassionate.

I have friends that love animals, save animals, foster animals, advocate for animals and they eat meat. Does this make them less peaceful, kind, compassionate? No.

I read lots of books/blogs/tweets about animal abuse because (for me) knowing leads to knowing better.

I am not a perfect vegan πŸ™‚ I will not return a veggie taco plate if they forget I asked for no cheese. I will eat a vegetarian meal that was made specifically for me by someone who doesn’t know the difference between vegetarian and vegan. Lots of times I drink non-vegan wine πŸ™‚

Not sure if this makes me a chegan??? Whatever πŸ™‚

Thinking of what to make for Meatless Monday?

Today a recipe for a “one pot thai peanut pasta” was posted on veganfoody. My favorite vegan food blog!

My husband and I both loved it. Two helpings each! The freshness, creaminess, flavor…basically everything about this meal was delicious πŸ™‚

Talk to you soon.
