A plethora of energies intertwine to allow me to offer some magically delicious advice today. First, it’s ‘National Men Make Dinner Day’ and ‘Sandwich Day,’ so maybe you can smell what I’m cooking up here. I thought I might offer a recipe for a Yam and Acorn Squash soup that’s not only easy to make but tasty as well. But let’s start with the magical promise of my original premise. Legend tells that the acorn squash got its name because of its similarity in appearance to actual acorns. There is a myth about the acorn people who live in the ancient oak tree. It says that everyone in this magical community from the ages of five to sixty-five wears a watch the flashes one word: now. Each acorn person has a unique and special gift to bring to the world, and they love unconditionally. Therefore, they have scattered their acorns to the winds in the hopes of bringing their unconditional love to the entire world. And love is the main ingredient of this lovely acorn squash soup. Heat some vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and add one large chopped onion. Sautee until golden and add five cups peeled and cubed yams and one small peeled and cubed acorn squash. Add two cups of chicken broth, decrease the heat and simmer for thirty minutes. Let cool and place the mix in a blender with a half-cup of plain yogurt. Blend until smooth. Return the blend to the saucepan and add two tablespoons pumpkin seeds and a quarter cup of whole milk. Stir and season with salt and pepper to taste. Forget about that old sandwich and make this soup to the strains of delight! They’ll love you for it!
