Butternut Squash Soup

In Switzerland, I was briefly a part of a supper club. But it fell on a night when I had dorm duty, and I quickly had to opt out. Betta stayed with it, however. I asked her one day how supper club was, and she couldn’t even make her way to the dinner; she just kept talking about the soup! I asked the cook about it, and Kerry laughed, “After every bite Betta took, she said, ‘Mmmmmmmmmm’.” So whenever the girls and I have something so tasty to warrant such praise, we deem it Butternut Squash Worthy.
