Butternut Squash Soup

I've been off the grid lately (while relying heavily on the *actual* grid in the form of Internet TV and Netflix), since I came down with a nasty bug. I know, it's a food blog, no one wants to hear me bitch about being sick. So I'll leave you with a soup that's good no matter your state of health, inspired by my friend Laura at Sweeter Salt.

I adapted the soup by using apples, rutabagas, and potatoes too. Next time I'll leave out the apple though, since with the leeks, it made it kind of sweet. But a lot of salty Parmesan made up for it!

Served with some of Rosemont's Foccacia (love you, Rosemont), this meal made a great light dinner and some seriously delicious lunch leftovers.
