Oh yes..this is indeed a real recipe blog posting! At last..but alas I didn't make it..the hard work of chopping things and throwing them into the slow cooker was all ML's. lol. However, it's real food and a I am happy.

This soup is one that gets made quite often here..for the simple reason that it's the only cooked food I can eat when feeling..yuck. And I have managed to eat it this an improvement eh? I can't remember where I found this recipe as it's now just a printed off recipe in one of my many folders of random recipes..but if it's yours or you do know where it originated then please..just email me..and I'll make the amendments.

I love this soup/stew (I can never decide because it's kinda because it is very simple..I love Butternut and the spice comes from the fabulous blend that is Garam Masala..couldn't live without this spice. Makes me smile to just smell it in its when this soup is cooking I am in aroma heaven. lol.
