Who doesn't like the smell of Thanksgiving dinner cooking? It's one of those smells that just warms your heart. I'd been wanting to try a Butternut Squash soup for a while, but knew I never could make it when my husband was around. He detests squash of any kind and sweet potatoes too. Usually whenever he's gone I make all those things for myself. My kids like some of it, but not all. But I just don't care sometimes. The first week he was gone I was trying to do a good cleanse and get sugars out. This was a great recipe to do that with. I made the soup and meatballs and ate it for lunch throughout the week. I froze half of it to pull out later.
I had found a few different recipes for this kind of soup, but didn't know where to start. Then I was checking out recipes from Change of Pace and found her favorite along with her recipe for Thanksgiving Meatballs. Sounded good to me and like a perfect combo. So I gave it a try! Both are delicious! The meatballs have the perfect flavor and taste to get you through the year until next Thanksgiving and the soup had the perfect flavor to go with them. Not to mention tasting good too. I hope you like it as much as I did. Use it as a go-to lunch or a nice hot dinner on a cold night.
