Butternut Squash Soup


Another soup from my no-carb-diet recipe list which dint fail to impress is the butternut squash soup. I had tasted this yummy Butternut-Squash soup at a restaurant called Mylai Masala in New Jersey during our "girls-only" meetup about a month back. Five years after graduation, 7 of us traveled from different states within the US and one of our friends flew in from Europe to make this re-union happen, how great is that?! :) I really cant explain in words how eventful and fun the trip was. Women almost always lose touch with friends post University. They get tied up in a myriad of personal-professional events and the friendship is comfortably forgotten. But somehow, thanks to whats-app  we keep in touch everyday. We share little things right from whats cooking in the kitchen to who should be the prime minister of India ;). Its extremely therapeutic.  I just hope that we continue to do this day in and day out until our hair turns a shade of grey and later than that.
