This ain't no ramen noodles and hot pockets

Week one of Operation Plan Your Damn Menu has been successful. Pictured above is the Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup from 101 Cookbooks. (Excuse the iPhone photography—at least I kind of tried to stage it). I have to say, this recipe was mind-blowingly easy. It also helped that I had a bunch of acorn squash sitting around from approximately November (I'm not really sure, but it was before the local Amish food stands shut down, which was a while ago). I was a little leery of using really old squash, but they were fine. Score one for me! Also, the soup was really, really tasty. This will become a winter staple for sure.
