Good fall soup, & velvety smooth. You can purchase frozen butternut squash, which you can use to cut down preparation time.

The soup smelled good but when I tried it it had way to much nutmeg in in. The squash was completly hidden by the amount of spices used. The texture was good but I am going to try to dilute this batch with some more broth to reduce the spices. Next time I will half the spices and may even only put a pinch of nutmeg in.
