We had a cool evening a few nights ago, the perfect chance to try this soup. It was as delicious as I thought it would be! The only changes I made was to use coconut milk (well, okay, cow's milk and coconut extract- a trick I learned from a gal here on the 'zaar, Sueie, I think it was) and to leave the acorn squash in chunks (I prefer some texture in my soups). This will become a regular as the cold weather sets it. Thanks
