Crockpot Butternut Squash Soup

I have failed multiple times at making butternut squash soup. It never comes out the way I want it to. None the less, I found myself stuck with about 1 lbs of butternut squash. I roasted half of it a few days before and it was delish, but I thought why not take the rest and see if I could -once and for all- make a decent butternut squash soup.

SUCCESS!!!

I am beyond excited to share this with my mom. Her and I are constantly cooking and trying new recipes. Like me, she has tried to take a whack at butternut squash soup and it has always failed. Now we finally have a recipe!

When I took my first taste, I was a little disappointed… I couldn’t tell if it was missing something. Any who, I didn’t want to mess with it too much because it still was pretty good. I let it sit overnight in the fridge and voila! I heated it up for dinner tonight and it was PERRRRRFECT. Like, crazzzyy good.
