Just a slight variation from an recipe*, shared with me via our good friend Missy. Hooray for Bountiful Baskets and the yummy new recipes they encourage! 

RECIPE: Butternut Squash Soup

2 butternut squashes, peel + chop
8 c water
1/2 cube butter
3 Tbsp minced onion
2 Tbsp chicken bullion
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
8 oz cream cheese (1 pkg)
1 c milk
Gruyère cheese (opt)

Peel and chop the butternut squash. Put it in a large pot. Add water, butter and all herbs/spices. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Boil/simmer for 20 min or until the squash is tender.

Carefully purée in a blender (it's hot) with the cream cheese. Pour back into pot and add milk. Serve warm and top with shredded Gruyère cheese. Yum!
