A Winter Snow Day OOTD
January 25, 2021
This butternut squash and apple bisque is quick, easy, and has allll the fall flavors! Serve with crusty bread and a coconut crema for a tasty winter meal!
I’m one of those weird people who loves the winter, even though I hate to be so cold all the time! One of the reasons why I love living in Michigan is because we can have all four seasons in a year, and really get to experience them (for better or for worse!).
In the winter, my family has traditionally gone skiing out west for a family vacation every year. With our busy schedules, the hubs and I haven’t always been able to find the time to get out there, though. And so I’m so excited that we are going to be heading out west again with our family in January to head to Big Sky, Montana for a (hopefully)-powder-filled week of fun!

In honor of our upcoming ski trip, I’m sharing my riff on one of the most delicious soups ever, butternut squash soup! This soup is based on a recipe we had on our last ski trip out west, while at the Montage at Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. It’s definitely one of my top favorite places to eat lunch on a ski mountain: the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is so cozy and inviting, yet sophisticated. They even offer you slippers when you check in, so you can swap out your ski boots for the meal if you’d like to be more comfortable while you eat!
This butternut squash soup itself is fairly simple and classic, but it’s the pairings that really make it shine! Tart Granny Smith apples and a creamy coconut-y crema make for a beautifully bright soup that tastes so luscious and rich. I love love love the hint of coconut in the crema, and pairing it all with some crusty bread is like icing on the cake! Carbohydrate-icing on a butternut squash cake, if you will.
