Nope, wasn't doing nothin'

I promise that I wasn’t eating the fountain cord… um, I’m not sure why it isn’t working any more…

DKM Nosh – Savory Butternut Squash Soup | If you want a sweet soup – click here

  • One Butternut Squash roasted (2 cups of flesh)
  • 4 cups of veggie stock
  • 2oz. Whiskey, brandy or sherry (optional)
  • Thyme and ginger or Herbs of your choice (sage is very good!)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Wee bit of olive oil

Roast the squash in a 450 oven.  Use your wee bit of oil and rub the flesh of the squash;salt and pepper. It will take from 20-40 minutes depending on the size of the squash.

Roasting Butternut

Once the squash is cool to the touch, scoop out the flesh and dump in a pot with stock, thyme and ginger (I used shaved fresh ginger – it adds a nice bite to the soup). Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Butternut Squash soup In the pot

Blend with a stick blender until smooth, then add whiskey and taste for salt and pepper – simmer 10 more min. Serve with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream.

  2. Hmmmmm . . . that even looks good enough fer a kitty to eat (if we likes pumpkin, maybe we’d like squash?).

    P.S. We’ve convinced our beans that cords just git old and fray on their own – hehehehe!

  3. I am sure that you had nothing to do with the fountain not working any more. That soup looks delicious.

    2-March-2008 at 9:27 pm

  4. No I am sure you weren’t doing anything at all!

    2-March-2008 at 9:42 pm

  5. Of course you had nothing to do with the fountain not working. Those things break all the time, for no reason!

    And I absolutely love butternut squash! This was the first winter in a long time I didn’t make butternut squash casserole. Yum!

  6. Lando you look *very* disapproving of the suggestion that you would be chewing on the cord.
    Excellent disapproving!

    Mombean sez the soup look yummy, but she is soooo tired of winter food. “Where, oh where is the asparagus? Isn’t is asparagus season yet?” She sez

  7. Better be careful, you might get a shock!

    The tiny holes in the cords give us away every time.

    Mom went “YUM” over the soup!

  8. you’re a furry cute bunny an we know you didn’t do anything wrong, just like how my brother Rascal never chews cords either. never. nope.

    the Lady sez the squash stuff looks yummy. it prolly is. all food is yummy ‘cept fur fruit. I don’t like fruit.

    yes. Grr’s still trying to eat me. sometimes when she gets to come outta her room, she even tries attacking Rascal. he just runs or smacks her though. I make a fierce panther noise, but she tries to attack me anyway. her bell collar helps us know where she is though, so she hasn’t gotten an actual taste of me in weeks.

  9. You are the poster bunny for innocence!

  10. Yummy, and pretty presentation too. The soup, not the fountain cord.

    3-March-2008 at 3:01 am

  11. Don’t worry Lando – just say that it’s natural – the cord ‘eroded’, that’s all. You know, wind and rain and the forces of nature do that. Must be big forces of nature at your place.

    Mum was impressed with the soup, although we’re not sure that we want any with whisky added – maybe we’ll let Mum have it as long as we get compensatory stinky goodness.

  12. Just plead the 5th, don’t say anything!

    The Pm is going to try that soup. We are sick of seeing those squash laying around. They are too much fun to play with.

  13. Mmmmmm…. skarsh!
    Hey, you know, the same thing happened to dad’s mouse cord recently. Maybe it’s an epidemic?

    3-March-2008 at 6:54 am

  14. That bunny is sooo not innocent!


    Soup looks delish!

    3-March-2008 at 7:30 am

  15. Oh, Lando . . . I am sure you are innocent!

    DKM, that recipe made my mommy drool.

    3-March-2008 at 7:52 am

  16. why are we always suspected when a cord gets chewed? it could be ghosts or something, humans are so distrusting!

    3-March-2008 at 7:59 am

  17. It’s descrimination…yoo are always da first suspect.

    3-March-2008 at 9:19 am

  18. Lando, you look very innocent to me. But hide any evidence, just in case.

    3-March-2008 at 9:46 am

  19. Those stoopid fountains malfunction all the time. People are way too quick to balme the bunny on these things.
    (Ummm…. regarding the recipie…Mom says she’s gonna cut to the chase & just drink the whiskey.)

    3-March-2008 at 10:46 am

  20. I totally believe you. Totally.

    3-March-2008 at 11:01 am

  21. diva kitty it is always so nice hearing from you.

    it is equally as nice coming to your blog. the music you have on here always puts my whole mind and body at ease….what an oasis this spot is!

    i’m going to make this soup, i’m about to start drooling on my keyboard right now!


    3-March-2008 at 11:34 am

  22. I believe you, Orlando. If you need a character witness, I’ve got your back.

    3-March-2008 at 11:50 am

  23. Ma says that soup sure looks yummy!

    3-March-2008 at 12:45 pm

  24. Hey – we “never” chew on cords too!

    Mommy’s tummy is growling looking at the DKM’s soup – she’s changing dinner plans now!

    3-March-2008 at 1:25 pm

  25. Course you didn’t touch the cord. You look much too innocent furr that.

    3-March-2008 at 3:40 pm

  26. We, the jury of 11 rabbits here at The House of Rabbits find Lando INNOCENT by virtue of – of – uh – CUTENESS!

    They served baked acorn squash with brown sugar butter here the other night to the 2-foots.

    3-March-2008 at 5:44 pm

  27. Lux
