Butternut Squash Soup with Brown Butter

Well guys, I made it back from vacation; tired and in need of another vacation, but I digress.  We had a lovely time and weather just could not have been better, but coming home to cold temps (it was 28F here,) not much in the fridge, and with a cold, meant that the squash I squirreled away before leaving was going to become soup.  Then with my vacation addled brain, it became a choice of which recipe to make.  So, shopping in my fridge and pantry revealed butter, leeks, carrots, shallots, and vegetable stock, so this is the one I chose.  Plus, I believe brown butter makes everything better.  There are a few steps (particularly if you make your own stock,) but it is well worth it in the end.  I would definitely double the recipe next time.  It heats up well and do not skimp on the garnish and crusty bread. Ciao!

Butternut with Bacon, Tomatillo, and Chipotle

I’m a Rick Bayless fan; I love that he seems so genuine, I love that he loves to cook and eat, I love that he balances his life with a daily yoga practice (he is pretty impressive,) mostly I love when he takes foods that we are used to and adds Mexican ingredients to create new and exciting flavors. I made this recipe a couple of times last year, once as written, but then once with green tomatoes subbed in for the tomatillos. Both were excellent, but if you want to throw a little southern spin on it, then I would use the green tomatoes. This would be great for an every day meal, but I also think it would work wonderfully for Thanksgiving.
