What up

Butternut squash soup is what's up!

I literally didn't know how to get started so I watched a tutorial online.
yeaa..... CJ! He was my favorite on Top Chef ;-) ;-) ;-)
Did ya know there were seeds in the bottom half of these buggers? I DIDN'T! The mush feels exactly like when you reach your hands into the innards of a pumpkin.
The scooping part got a little dirty. My hands were all gunky!!
The best I could do..
The peeling was the hardest part. I think I need a sharper vegetable peeler. I'm sure it makes all the difference.
The peels were flying EVERYWHERE!!!
Chop chop chop away into cube size pieces.
 Sauteed some onions in EVOO..
Sooouuup...is that you? I can't see you!!
Much better!
Added the squash, 3 cups of vegetable broth and 1 cup of water. Simmer until the veggies are tender.
A sprinkle of this, a dash of that...
Blend it all together 
Return to stove top, add in some creme fraiche and you have some lunch!
Nothing better on a chilly, rainy fall day than BNS!
Whole wheat toast w. laughing cow cheese and honey

Workout today: Zumba

Post workout shake:

Into the Vitamix:
-scoop of protein powder
-1 bananer
-1 cup of soy milk
-handful of ice

Out of the Vitamix: Frothy chocolate banana protein shake. Mmm.. lip smacking good!
The foam roller and my sore muscles had a meeting this afternoon. 

Foam rolling is such a bad idea at the time but you feel Sooooooo good afterwards. 
Hold the roller where it hurts most. Painful yes. But totally worth it
I received some bad news today. RIP PAUL. :)
