Crock Pot Butternut Squash Soup

The weather was getting cold. It was feeling like fall. I started craving comfort foods and soup. What better time to try out a new butternut squash Crock Pot recipe. I put it on our menu, then wonderful Ohio weather decided to take a turn and go back to the 80 degree temperatures. I still made it and enjoyed it. But leftovers went in the freezer. It turned out so delicious, even my kids ate it. The soup was also a lot easier to make then I had anticipated. 


Everything gets tossed into a slow cooker then blend and serve.


A few years ago for Christmas we got a One Second Slicer (now it has so many more attachment options than what ours came with). It makes dicing everything so much quicker and easier. I use to for everything.
