It’s my last day here in New York City and it was freezing!  Especially for this South Florida girl.  I have to admit the weather on Sunday and Monday was perfect so I shouldn’t complain but today I spent more time outside and I still can’t feel my toes.  The warm mid 70 weather down in Florida will be nice to go home to.  As much as I like cold weather I think I can only handle a few short days.  Since I’m still defrosting from my day in the city I thought I would share a warm soup recipe and one of my new favorites.  I made this while on the cleanse and when eating it I thought I was cheating because it was so yummy.  The sweetness of the butternut squash and the apple pair perfectly together.  I actually ate this soup both cold and warm but I highly recommend it warm.  Serve with biscuits or bread of choice.  The perfect lunch time or dinner meal.

I’m going to keep this post short because I still have to pack so I can get up early tomorrow morning to head to the airport.  See you back here soon everyone and enjoy the soup!!

    I love the creaminess of this soup but that color is just too gorgeous to pass up. Healthy and lovely. I will be trying this.

  3. My recipe is very similar sans celery carrot and garlic – and with a knob of ginger. It is dynamite, too. Love the colour and the nutritive value. I have a sweet potato soup I make almost the same way, as well. I am a soup fiend, and this looks brilliant!
