We got some butternut squash from a fellow church member last week and tonight some soup was made from it. This was a little spicy, delicious and good for you.
This soup tastes like you slaved over the stove all day, but it’s actually quite simple and very delicious!
- 2 butternut squash
- 1 cup heavy cream (or 1 can coconut milk)
- 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 onion or 1 shallot, coarsely diced
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp Sriracha (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste

There are times when I am a black or white sort of guy, and there aren’t many shades of gray. It’s one thing, or another. Sometimes I am about what’s on the extremes, instead of the middle. That bothers me because I sometimes come across as a jerk who isn’t very open minded. We live in a world where there is lots of moderation and a middle way sort of thing. My Episcopal faith teaches the Via Media which about the middle way or perhaps a 3rd option.
I need to perhaps embrace that more. Lots of people live in the gray, because it is what helps them get through life without being lonely because they are more concerned with people more than positions or politics or anything like that. Sometimes I need to be called out for not thinking about others and their viewpoints. My friends I want to be the person who thinks about the road others have taken to get where they are and perhaps learn something myself about their struggles.
Now is the time to embrace the notion that we are all different, unique and talented in our own ways and there are people who are many shades of gray.
