I hate this love/hate relationship with rainy days, because yeah, they’re can be all nice and cozy if you’re wrapped in lots of blankets and drinking hot coffee (ie: my rainy Pinterest board… see? I do love rain sometimes)… but on the other they are terrible if you have to spend the day working in the fields or running outdoors and it’s raining buckets. I hate when that happens!
Good thing is that rainy days call for warm soups… And hot chocolate, tea, coffee and even cheesecake, but let’s be honest here: any day calls for cheesecake… anyway, forget about it (not that I ever couold forget about cheesecake, that stuff is always in my mind but still), this post is meant to be about soup alone… but there’s cheesecake coming soon and it’s a really delish one. Wait for it, you’re going to love it!
But let’s go back to the soup, because you don’t want to miss this one if you’re a big fan of fall foods, which I’m not, yet I found this soup truly comforting and delish. Apples, carrots and typical fall spices accompany butternut squash to make a very autumnal soup that not only tastes delicious, but it’s also good for you!
And if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to top it with some greek yogurt. Let’s face it: no meal is ever complete if it doesn’t include greek yogurt. Am I right or am I right? Sprinkle some pumpkin seeds as well (which are optional, but not really, because they add a wonderful crunch that you shouldn’t miss) and you’ll be about to try one of the best soups ever. Trust me, you cannot miss this one!
Now, tell me: do you enjoy rainy days? What’s your favorite way to spend one (besides curling up under a pile of blankets with a good book and endless supplies of warm tea, coffee and cookies, that’s it, because I’m assuming that that’s everybody’s favorite way to spend a rainy day!)?
Happy October, by the way!
