Apple Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Last week my boyfriend thought he’d ordered 2 Granny Smith apples. It turned out that he’d ordered 2 BAGS of Granny Smith apples – so I sent myself on a quest to find ways to use that many apples (or as my brain wants to say – “dem apples”). Thankfully, I came across this lovely soup recipe! It’s quite good, so I want to share it with you to try as well! I hope that it brings you some warmth through the chilly winter months.
