Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Gouda

Wanted to share with you some great soup.  Very simple.  Very delicious.  Pick the best ingredients because this soup totally relies on the ingredients being the best.

We were on our Anniversary trip to Cape Cod when I made this soup.  I did not have a blender to puree it but it didn't matter, it totally was delicious.

It was a bit chilly that day so it felt like warmth being breathed into our bodies, right to our core. We had it first while we waited to dig into our lobster.  It was truly a magical evening and the soup was no exception.
