winter dinner

This past Sunday started out dark and rainy.  By the end of the day it was snowing making it the perfect day to stay in and enjoy comfort food.  I baked the olive bread from Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s new book Isa does it.  It smelled delicious, and resulted in a nice soft bread.  Image

For the curry butternut squash soup I used some leftover squash I had in the freezer.  It was easy to put together.  I sauteed two small onions and three cloves of garlic, then added a chopped apple until everything turned golden brown.  Next I added the squash and veggie broth.  After everything was soft and hot I added a tablespoon of curry powder.  Lastly I pureed the entire thing with my immersion blender.  We enjoyed the bread with a store bought bean dip.
