Butternut squash?

I had my husband pick up a couple of butternut squash at the Berry College produce sell.  Now they have been sitting in my kitchen for a week while I walk by them each day and think what am I going to do with you!  I have had this thought many times each day for the last week.  I seem to remember thinking I'll make something out of you tomorrow after I get the kitchen in better order.  Well, after not feeling good for a day or two I see as soup!  

The last time I tried to make homemade butternut squash soup I used a recipe that a friend found and it didn't turn out very well.  I am not good at a lot of things but I am pretty good at research.  So off to the internet I go.  I looked at lots of different  recipes and none sounded good to me.  Either too many ingredients or ingredients that I don't have on hand.  So that means I have to make up my own.  Sometimes this works out and sometimes not.

This time it turned out so good.  I took what I thought would be the best of about 5 different recipes and turned it into a one pot meal.  Caramelized squash and onions, white pepper, a little honey, nutmeg and cream.  Check out my Caramelized Butternut Squash soup, it is one of my best recipes yet.
