This is a delicious thick creamy rich soup with a lovely yellow colour, perfect for those cool fall and cold winter nights. You can adjust the dill, cayenne and curry to taste and this recipe can easily be doubled.

This was SO good. A neighbor gave me 5 acorn squash. I used them all and I think I had 6 cups of squash. I doubled everything except for the dill weed (wasn't sure I was going to like that), bouillon (thought I would have enough salt), I doubled the celery, and I used lowfat yogurt. Fantastic. Also I calculated the calories on spark people's recipe calculator site. As I made it, I think it was 78 calories with 2.5 g fat for 1/2 cup serving. (no bacon and croutons) Hope that helps someone.
