Curried Butternut Squash Soup

March 21, 2013

“I ready boa!”

After a laughing fit I felt the back of my throat itch.  Everytime I feel the first sign of a cold I take immediate action.  I remember I was once at a club and felt a sore throat.  I got 3 cups of water and one straight rum.  I took the rum home (I don’t know how I got away with it) put it in the microwave for a few seconds and downed it with some hot pepper sauce on the back of my hand.  I do not like getting sick.  Recently I’ve discovered that my body likes to fight foreign bodies including antibiotics, with this recent knowledge that my body is still tough I set to work trying to rid myself of  a possible throat infection.  I drunk as much water as I could and made this spicy soup.  The next day the itch was gone and if it comes back I have rum at the ready!  “I ready boa!”

This recipe was adapted from Fitness Magazine (2012).
