Cold Picnics


This is my favorite time to dine outside, the weather is cool and there are barely any bugs to contend with. I'm not sure I would pop plastic spiders in my soup as a garnish again, but those were the only bugs at this dinner! My family loves butternut squash soup and it is the perfect Fall food.

I don't like to share my picnic with bugs unless they are the plastic variety. LOL

Cheers,
