Alla: "Yes! Will you feed me?"
Me: "I suppose so. How about some butternut squash soup?"
Alla: "Yes! And Anna's famous grilled cheese?"
Me: "Sure, but I don't have bread and cheese, so can you pick some up on your way?"
Alla: "Oh, I have some tortillas and cheese, I'll bring those and we can have quesadillas."
Me: "Perfect! And you're in luck, I don't have any onions on hand either, so they won't go into the soup."
Alla: "Cool! And don't put any other eeky stuff into the soup either, please."
Me: (rolling my eyes) "Ok, fine! See you soon."
And that's how I made this No Thrills Butternut Squash Soup. Had I been making the soup for myself, I would throw in some extra ingredients: cayenne pepper, corriander, perhaps some onions. But this "no thrills" version was delicious on its own!
