Acorn Squash and Granny Smith Apple Soup

"I got this recipe from and it was written by Fiona Haynes. I'm adding this because this is a great recipe and tastes great, wonderful on a cool autumn night. "Acorn Squash has a slightly earthier taste than butternut squash, which complements the sweetness of the apple and mild spice of the curry powder. Enjoy this acorn squash and apple soup with some crusty whole-grain bread." -Fiona Haynes"

  1. We really enjoyed this soup. It was creamy and the apples with the curry were a wonderful touch


My name is melissa* and i live in california. i work for exxon mobil and DCH. I truly enjoy both jobs, although my passions are music, dance, art of many different forms including the afore mentioned, painting, cooking of course, writing, polymer clay sculpting, film, acting, and singing. I actively participate in all of the above except for film making, although i appreciate it very much. I love to watch movies as my husband and i spend a lot of time and money seeing, buying, renting etc. He and I both attend church avidly, and play and sing on the worship band every sunday. He plays lead guitar primarily, and plays bass from time to time when we switch around. I play both bass and keys primarily, as i switch more often. He is more needed as the lead guitarist, and when i am on bass no one plays keys because its not as necessary. Rude people bug me, especially rude drivers. I try to be courteous, although im sure you all can agree with me that when someone is rude to you its so easy to be rude back, but God gives me the grace and patients to get through the day driving back and forth to work.
