Autumn feast

I love it when the weather turns colder and the leaves turn colour, bright reds, oranges, yellows and browns. The other day out in the garden, I was raking up all the leaves in the crisp cold air, getting the blood moving around my body. Eating seasonally is what nature intended for us to do. There is nothing better than coming back inside to a bowl of home made soup. While I was outside I picked some fresh herbs - sage and rosemary to add to the butternut squash soup I made, here is the recipe for you to try.

Ps. you can also take the butternut seeds and roast them in a low oven with some olive oil they make a delicious snack
