Nothing screams fall more than butternut squash soup in my opinion and lately I have been making buckets of it. Considering I can pick up a butternut squash for under $5, have all the other ingredients on hand, and can make it in the slow cooker - it's a favorite meal and freezer item around here. Usually I like to stick to the classic fall butternut squash soup with apples but sometimes I go for a spicy version or < a href="/recipe/slow-cooker-curried-butternut-squash-soup">curried version. Indian curry works but I actually prefer Thai curry paste for my soup. The sweet and spicy combination is hard to beat.
