This soup is Autumn in a bowl. I was going to wait until later in the fall to post it, but our weather today has been so sublime, I just had to share. I have a butternut squash in my pantry now just waiting to be transformed into this lusciousness. The molasses is optional, but adds a nice hint of smokiness. Warming ginger rounds out the baking spices nicely and fresh thyme gives everything a little bit of an earthy, woodsy flavor. Enjoy!
