Will walking and butternut squash soup!

Will has started walking! He started about 2 weeks ago, and he now walks more than he crawls. Here he is walking one night this week and then the next morning...

And here are a few pictures I took of Will this week. The weather has been so nice, so we've spent as much time outside as we can!

And here are a few things I made this week...

Pioneer Woman's Roasted Garlic and New Potatoes - yum!

Almond Chicken Stir-fry from Southern Living

Also, I wanted to post this recipe that I sort of made up for butternut squash soup that turned out really good...

Butternut Squash Soup

2 butternut squash
1 onion
3 T butter
3-4 cups broth
1/2 cup half and half or cream

Cut butternut squash in half and brush each side with olive oil, kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. Roast on pan with the cut side down for 45 minutes at 375.

Saute onion in butter.

Scoop out squash with a spoon. In blender or food processor, puree half of the squash and sauteed onion with 1 1/2 cups of broth and 1/4 cup of half and half. Repeat process with the other half.

Heat mixture over low. Add whatever spices you like - I added lots of cayenne pepper to give it some kick, with a little bit of nutmeg and curry powder and a little more fresh ground pepper. Add more broth or creme if mixture is too thick. Enjoy!
