Soup of the Evening, Beautiful Soup

"Beautiful soup so rich and green
Waiting in a hot tureen!

Who for such dainties would not stoop? Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup! Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup! Beau--ootiful Soo--oop! Beau--ootiful Soo--oop! Soo--oop of the e--e--evening, Beautiful, beautiful Soup"

Well, this soup isn't green but it's certainly beautiful. Lewis Carroll would be proud. This is the soup I made with some of the roasted red kabocha squash I purchased at the farmer's market. For this batch, I sauteed onion and shallot in some butter, added chicken broth and some tarragon, simmered and pureed.

Wondering now if we'll ever see the end of the squash. Reminds me of another quote, this one from Dorothy Parker who defined eternity as "A ham and two people." Same goes for a 10-pound squash.
