Fall Fun

Did I mention I love fall?  Oh, well in that case, let me tell you what I have been up to. 

Here are my new boots:

I love them 100% and I try to wear them as much as possible.  I can't wait to get them scuffed up a bit.  My style is changing lately.  It must be this new mom thing.  No, I am not sporting mom jeans.  I am wearing leggings a lot.  I would have never done such a thing before as I thought I was "too fat."  I am more overweight than I should be right now but honestly, I don't really give a damn.  If I want to wear cute boots with leggings, I am going to do it!

I am also trying new things in the cooking department.  I made Curry Butternut Squash soup this weekend.  I love any food that comes with directions on how to cook it so butternut squash fits the bill perfectly.

It was super easy.  I used one butternut squash sliced in half, deseeded, and baked in the oven. 
Sauteed some minced onions and butter in a pan while the squash was baking.
When the squash was done, I removed the outside peel of the squash and put it and the onions, butter and a little water in the food processor and dumped it in a large pot.
Then I added a few cups of chicken broth, chopped cooked sweet potato and regular potato (you can add whatever veggies you want), a cup of cream, pepper and a handful of hot curry powder.
Bring to a simmer and serve.

It was quite tasty but I did not think we would eat all the leftovers so I did something else I have never done, froze the rest!  I was clueless as how to do this without getting it all freezer burned but my friend, Kaiti, helped me out (thanks lady!)  I just let it sit out until it cooled and threw it in a tupperware container and put it in the freezer.  Easy!
