butternut squash soup

there's nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of homemade soup on a cold winter's day. one of our favorites is creamy butternut squash soup. here's how we made it...

chop one cup of carrots, one cup of onion, and one cup of celery and saute in a pot with oil until tender.

add 1/4 cup of crushed tomatoes and 4 cups of water. cut the squash into small pieces and boil the ingredients in the pot for one hour.

when finished, blend the ingredients in a blender little by little to create the creamy texture. add salt and pepper to taste.

eat it up!

oh and i got the floral tablecloth at a flea market in rome. i just love it! it makes everything look so good!
