Fall Squash Soup
To easily peel the squash, first cut a small piece off of each end. Set the large end flat on a cutting board, and use a potato peeler to peel downward from the top in long strokes. Once peeled, cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon.
For more control over the chunkiness of the soup, puree part of it in a stand blender instead of using a stick blender.
