Foodie Friday: Roasted Pepper and Butternut Squash Soup

Happy Friday y’all!  It is that time of year again when I am obsessed with roasting veggies!  I even had to buy more baking sheets to stay on top of all the veggies I have been going through!  So easy, so healthy and so YUM!
Today I am linking up once again with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit!! Our theme this week is meatless! 
When I first saw the meatless theme pop up, all I could think about were some awesome chicken recipes I have been looking at on Pinterest!  But then I was at Trader Joe’s and tasted some awesome salad I decided to make some soup to go along with it!  And it turned out wonderfully!

    Yay for soup! Best fall comfort food ever (I feel like the only other likely contender would be a pot pie of some sort). I love the sound of this! ❤ It looks so tasty! :]
