WIAW - Fall Squash + Corn Soup

It's What I Ate Wednesday courtesy of the lovely Peas and Crayons, and since we've been talking about "Falling Into Good Habits", I decided that a savory Fall Soup was on tap for this week.

I love coming home to a fresh pot of soup and a slice of crusty bread, after a cold day. And this meal is ideal for warming up after a chilly autumn run.

Savory Fall Squah + Corn Soup

4 slices of Bacon, finely chopped
1 white onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 acorn squash, peeled and cubed
3 cobs of corn, remove kenerals from the cob
1.5 cups of veg. stock
2 tbsp of fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tbsp, red pepper flakes

1. Put a dollop of EVO in the bottom of your stewing pot with the bacon, onion, and red pepper flakes. Cook for 7 minutes at high heat
2. Add the rest of the veg, along with the stock and rosemary to the pot, cover, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to a simmer
3. Allow all the ingredients to simmer for 35 minutes, or until squash is tender
4. Blend contents until smooth, and plate, top with fresh group pepper

Hope you all Enjoy!
