Best Butternut Squash Soup; Felling Trees — 13 Comments

  1. oh how wonderful……I love your life and I love what you are doing to your home! Hubby seemed to have it altogether pulling that tree down……..and then you served him that delicious soup!! What a women!

  2. I had that exact experience with my first husband – the rope, the tree, the dawning impossibility of either directing its fall or getting hubby’s attention over the noise of the chainsaw when I knew I couldn’t hold it! Whew!

  3. Sherry? Wow! Never thought of that one….And I love butternut squash soup!
    Now, as for the tree…. You are quite brave. I didn’t notice in your story that there were any instructions as to how to get away in time. But clearly you did and all is well….

  4. I love your life and I love what you are doing to your home! Hubby seemed to have it altogether pulling that tree down.

  5. Jann, I’m so glad he knows what he’s doing…
    Natashya, they do it very well!
    Zoomie, and the determination not to look up to see if everything is okay…..
    Toni, he told me to run – while pulling the rope… Fast
    herzinfarkt, we try – thanks for the kind words

  6. Do you have any suggestions to make this recipe vegan? I’m struggling with being dairy free, and on top of that I also don’t eat poultry but I want to try some of your soup recipes. Do you think that using vegetable stock would be effective?

  7. Curt, tree-felling is not in my repertoire – or, at least it didn’t use to be…
    Magic of Spice – thanks… I ran – but with the rope LOL
    sippitysup, helpers are always welcome…. please.
    Lindsay, vegetable stock for the chicken would work, or just water with another tbs tomato paste. Reserve some of the leeks and fry until crisp to use as a garnish instead of the yogurt. Does that help ;-))
