Butternut Squash Soup and The Redskins...

It doesn't get much better than this!  

Okay... first... my husband has made me a Redskins fan.  Last year I was feeling them, but this year I'm in love.  And today... they beat the Cowboys!  AH-MAZING!!! Did you see this game?  It was perfection.  Beautiful.  I was biting my nails 'til the end.  It made me think of my old band days and how fun it was to watch high school football games.  haha  I'm a dork.  What can I say?  

Here's my girl watching her team play...  

Now... secondly, Butternut Squash Soup... Have you tried this?  If not... go out immediately and buy all the ingredients to make this tonight!  It is SO GOOD!!! 

 I desperately wanted to make some soup this weekend.  So, I made beef stew yesterday, which is Andrew's favorite, and today I made a new recipe that was incredible ... and I highly recommend it!  I loved it and so did Caroline!  

The recipe comes from the lovely Paula Deen, whom I love!  Check it out!  

I was a little intimidated by the butternut squash themselves, but they weren't too bad.  It took me a good 30 minutes just to peel them and cut them up and my hands hurt.  It wasn't that it was hard, just time-consuming.  Also, if you read the recipe, I did add a couple of things at the end. To me it needed more spice, so I added a bit of cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg, also I added a tad more salt just to taste.  I can't tell you how much of this I added, because I never measure anything.  :-)  But I will say if you're looking for some yummy fall/winter comfort food, this is IT!   You HAVE to make it!  Go... do it... NOW!  

So... that's about it for this weekend.  Have a great week!

I can't wait to have a baby, too. And for you to live here!! Although our men will never be allowed to watch football together.... Marc's a die-hard Cowboys fan!!! In fact, I may have to keep it a secret that Andrew likes the Redskins. :-) J/k. He was bummed today. Love you!
