It’s pumpkin season still. Every time I look around there’s a pumpkin spice product somewhere nearby. Last night, I even saw a 24 layer chocolate cake with a pumpkin spice topping. And, honestly, it’s a warming feeling as winter is now clearly upon us. Although, without cinnamon in my diet, I eat very little pumpkin spice.
BUT I love my fall & winter soups, and butternut squash is one of my favorites. So when my mom saw Ina Garten’s Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and Curry Condiments Recipe, she bookmarked it as one to try! (You might have noticed she’s been doing a lot of cooking lately.)
And, while I was away at Disney World last weekend, she even found the perfect topping for the soup- pumpkin kernels. While I didn’t sample them, she greatly preferred the pumpkin kernels to the pumpkin seeds.
Oh right, the pumpkin kernels are actually pretty cool! They’re from a place called Gerbs (that was also at the GFAF Expo). Their entire product line is free of the top 10 allergens (and gluten), so they’re factory never comes into contact with gluten, wheat, peanut, tree nut, soy, egg, sesame, milk/dairy, fish, crustacean, shellfish, and mustard. You can read their allergen statement on their website, and check out all their products from trail mixes to
So without further ado, here’s another butternut squash to warm your heart. While I still love my first butternut squash soup, this one is for those who like a little bit more spice in their mouth. (It’s not too spicy though, I promise!)

And for my Fiesta Friday friends, I completed my first official runDisney half marathon in the rain last weekend! It was a cold, and slippery course, but I had a lot of fun. This weekend, I’m in Disneyland to finish the Coast-to-Coast challenge with the Avengers Superheroes half marathon! I’m so excited!
I’m also running with Team Gluten Free to raise funds for the Celiac Disease Foundation, and I met my goal earlier this week. Thank you so much to every one who donated! And, of course, more donations and shares are always welcome and appreciated.
