Harvest Butternut Squash Soup

I recently invited a few of my mom's neighbors over for lunch. I prepared this nice Butternut Squash soup with a Chicken Caesar Salad and bread.  I used the pumpkin soup bowls for the yummy soup. I also made those creamy apple cider caramels I shared previously.

My mom is progressing nicely.  We have high hopes of building a small house on our property, so she can be close.  She is very excited about a new house.

The pool house is almost finished.  I shall be posting some photos soon.  My husband has trim work and of course pavers for the entrance.
