Apple Squash Soup

Roast a butternut squash in the oven till soft.

Saute 1 large onion and 4 cloves of garlic in butter.
Peel, core and chop 4 apples, add the apples to the onions/garlic.
Season with 1 t curry, 1 t ginger, 1/2 t nutmeg, 1/2 t white pepper, pinch tarragon, pinch thyme.
Pour in some wine- I used Max Black from Deer Run Winery. About 3/4 cup.
Simmer on medium low until the apples are soft.

Scoop the cooked squash into the blender, add chicken broth. Blend till smooth.
Pour in big pot.
Spoon the apple/onion mixture into the blender, add chicken broth. Blend till smooth.
Pour into big pot with the squash.
Add chicken broth to soup until it thins to desired thickness.

Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste.

Let flavors mingle in big pot on low heat for about 1/2 hour.

Serve hot.

Joce, got your comment. Six days is not too unreasonable to go over, but you might want to have your vet take a look anyhow. Transition is a time when plenty can go wrong. Not seeing her it would be hard for me to say whether you should worry or not. Hope this helps...drop me a note if I can answer anything specific...would love to help, but don't want to give you the wrong advice.
