I used this as a starter outline, basically. I was having a few people over and made bread and someone else was bringing ham...and someone else brought cake for desert. I thought a soup would be a great addition to our mini-potluck. I happened to have an acorn squash that I was wary of trying (never had winter squash before), so I figured if I didn't like it someone would.
Anyway.... I wasn't sure who all would show, but it was possible that there would be someone allergic to gluten and a vegetarian, so I wanted to be sure that at least the soup would be fine for both of them. So I left out the flour, and replaced the chicken broth with vegetable broth. I omitted the chicken bouillon and added a little Adobo spice. I didn't have any dill weed, so I added a bit of juice from the pickle jar (as ridiculous as that may sound).
After it was all put together, I realized that it was much too watery for our taste and there wasn't enough of it. So we added some potatoes and more chicken broth and topped it with shredded cheddar cheese instead of bacon.
It was absolutely delicious!! Everyone loved it, and it went great with homemade wheat bread and ham. Even I liked it, and I'm not a big fan of soup.
