I just finished reading Forks Over Knives, a book about eating only plant based foods. It was interesting…but I don’t know if I could give up cheese. Still….several of the recipes looked good, so I headed to the store and picked up some stuff to make the acorn squash soup.
Who knew that peeling 3 acorn squash could be so difficult? The skin is hard! I finally figured out that if I cut the squash into sections along the valley in the rind it was easier to peel. But my fingers are still sore from gripping the vegetable peeler.
Katie was the unintended recipient of several small pieces of squash and peel. She loved both. I don’t know if that was because she doesn’t get people food and she thought this was special or because she really likes squash. Could be she likes squash because I know she loves cabbage, apple, carrots and just about anything else that hits the floor.
The soup has the squash, a sweet potato and carrots plus ground ginger and sage. It’s simmering now.
