Our garden has not been so successful this year. We’ve had various theories: the wood seems to be growing something, we forget to water it, etc. But then yesterday we found a fun reason … bunnies. There is a cute little hole of bunnies living beneath our tomatoes! I can’t even be mad that they’re eating our vegetables … I just want to snuggle them.

Although our garden has not been successful, our neighbors’ garden has been extremely successful, and they have given us quite a bit of their bounty, including some giant yellow squash. I wanted to make something different with the squash this year. I adore butternut squash soup, and thought maybe yellow squash would make a good soup. I was correct.

First, I roasted the squash with some cinnamon. Then, I put it in a pot with some spices, honey, and coconut milk, and mixed it all up. Finally, I put it in a bowl and sprinkled it with some sunflower seeds and coconut. This soup was creamy and full of flavor! It’s a new, delicious idea for all that yellow squash coming in!
