A while back I bought an immersion blender for Scott, king of the kitchen gadgets. The blender sat in the kitchen cabinet for several months until recently when I started getting CSA deliveries with various fall veggies such as squashes, potatoes, carrots and celery. In previous years, I'd made a few blended soups, always resulting in a big mess with the blender, pots and pans and a lot of cleanup. Now, I can't get enough. We've made all kinds of blended soups this season requiring just one pot and a little hum from the immersion blender. Here is a little something I made with some butternut squash, potatoes, celery and cilantro I received the other day. Healthy and yummm!!!
