butternut bisque.

pardon me.
i must blog the best recipe i've made in this kitchen as of late as so i don't completely forget the changes i made to it.

butternut bisque

1 onion, diced
1 apple, diced
2 c diced carrots
2 T butter
1.5 veggie bouillon cubes
3 c water
half of a huge butternut squash, peeled, diced
2 T sugar
3/4 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
lots of pepper
a little nutmeg or ginger.
1/2 c cream

saute onion, apple, and carrots in butter til they are done. add everything else into big stock pot but the cream, boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. when it looks done-ish and your neighbors are coming over to see what you have cooking, take it off, blend it in your blender (man i wish i had one of the immersion variety) and then add the cream. mix it up and try not to eat the entire batch in one sitting.
trust me people, this is great.

Sounds divine - but how do you cut a butternut squash? Do you have a machete?
