    I just made this recipe and it was a huge success! I added some shallots in with the garlic and it was yummy. My fiance loved it, said it was very filling. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Love your blog :)

    Butternut squash soup is the best – I always lightly curry ours. As for the travelling still – how very civilized! Pineau is one of my favourite things – all the flavour of a port with less alcohol. So you can drink more, of course ;-)
