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.
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.
