I used to make big vats of soup on Sundays and then freeze individual portions for when things got crazy. It’s more of a winter thing than a summer thing, because when things are crazy in summer I eat salads or scrambled eggs.
I came home tonight starving and in no mood to cook (rare, but it happens). Thank goodness old habits die hard, because I had one portion of butternut squash soup left in the freezer. Five minutes later, I’m transferring it from saucepan to soup bowl, and I’m happy again.
Incidentally, it was a butternut squash and potato soup, with nutmeg. I’m telling you, squash and nutmeg is a beautiful combination. You can’t beat spaghetti squash with a touch of maple syrup and lots of nutmeg. It’s great for rainy days, pajamas and movies.
Also, did you know that it’s Joe Biden’s birthday tomorrow? I didn’t, but I’m glad that Barack Obama remembered. (Check out the picture in the article. Biden looks so pleased with the cupcakes!)
