Yummy Recipe

Introduction: How about a nice recipe? I've never none that here! Besides, next Thursday is Thanksgiving and this really is yummy!

Ingredients: (serves 4-6)
4 tablespoons butter
1 onion chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup carrots, peeled and chopped
1 cup potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons fresh oregano
¾ - 1 quart chicken stock
1 tablespoon salt
½ tablespoon black pepper

Melt butter in a large pot. Add all vegetables and allow to sauté. Stir to make sure all ingredients are sautéing evenly. After a few minutes, add chicken stock so that it barely covers vegetables. Season with oregano. Allow this to cook until vegetables start to breakdown when being stirred. Use a hand blender or a counter top blender to puree the ingredients until a nice, smooth consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and crusty bread for a satisfying and very civil soup.
