Tomato Bisque. This was REALLY good and my little girls even said I could put it in their lunch! I used only 1 Tablespoon of butter and half a can of evaporated milk instead of the cream. I made some focaccia bread to dip in the soup. (recipe on my blog.)
If there's such a thing as autumn in a bowl, this is it. Rich, creamy butternut squash, tart Granny Smith apple, and a dash of curry, and you've got a warm, spicy dish that's sure to be a hit as an appetizer or a meal all by itself.
