Acorn Squash Soup with Bacon
www.allrecipes.com. All I can say is YUMMY!!! Greg and I had two full bowls each and the kids gobbled theirs up too. The bacon isn't necessary, but it did make a nice contrast to the sweet and slightly spicy soup.
ACORN SQUASH SOUP WITH BACON
1 small onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
dash cayenne pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
3 cups mashed cooked acorn squash
salt and pepper to taste
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
