Fall is so beautiful but it always makes me a little happy sad. What makes me just plain happy? Digging out my big soup pot and cheering things up with this gorgeous fall soup bursting with color and flavor. It’s so easy to make and full of good stuff to ward off the cold.
(Makes a big momma vat of soup, at least 8 servings or more. So invite some friends over and share it.)
2 tablespoons butter

2 cups butternut squash, cubed
2 – 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

Sauté the leeks in the butter in a large pot.

Bring to a boil then immediately reduce the flame to simmer, cover the pot and cook for 45 minutes.
