squash. soup. ping-pong. hmmm… what do these three things have in common? (and no, the squash in question is not to be confused with the racquet sport!) methinks mother nature seems to be getting a kick out of this funny game of ping-pong between spring and winter… changing seasons on a dime, every couple of days! what better way to deal with it and put a smile on your face than to enjoy a lovely cup of roasted acorn squash soup. smile.
