Butternut Squash & Corn Soup with Cashew Cream

With the government shut down, my Mondays are pretty much freed up. I could have done a more time-consuming meal, but I did a number of chores and decided to color to calm myself down. All the same, expect some craziness later in the week.


I'm instantly a big fan of this quick and easy. If you make it, the cashew cream is a must. A good portion of the flavor comes from it.
