Friends, February is the month to cozy up, enjoy a bowl of Creamy Coconut Butternut Squash Soup, and get warm. At least for us this week. We have snow coming off and on all week long!

Time to get in the kitchen and whip up a pot of soup. We love Butternut Squash Coconut Soup, with kaffir lime leaf.

Kaffir Lime Leaves

Oh, what are kaffir lime leaves? Kaffir lime leaf is a key ingredient in Thai or Asian cooking, and the flavors are superb (and the smell). [Buy Kaffir Lime Leaves Flakes on Amazon.]

How long does butternut squash soup keep in the fridge?

This butternut squash soup will last 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. But for our family, leftovers usually don’t last that long. HA.

Does butternut squash soup freeze well?

First of all, butternut squash freezes very well! You can freeze it raw or cooked. Lay on a cookie sheet and freeze first, then place the pieces in a bag or container.

For this soup recipe, I would not freeze it, because of the coconut milk. I just don’t like milk products frozen. If you try freezing this, come back and tell me how it went! :)

Thoughts on February

This is how we’re enjoying our February so far.

  • It’s fun in the evening to cozy up to our favorite TV shows. As long as we don’t spend hours doing this, it’s okay to take a mini vacation from the ‘real world’ and enjoy our favorite Netflix shows.
  • Wrap up in a fluffy blanket. We have lots of comfy blankets in our living room.
  • Enjoy the wood stove. We have a chair we sometimes flip around, and sit by the fire with a cup of tea and favorite book.
  • Take a long, relaxing nature walk. We headed out this week in the beautiful snow to take a long walk. There’s something about the snow, that makes you slow down and take in the sights and sounds all around you.

I came across this saying, and it gave my soul a little boost of thankfulness.

To be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up to the stars; to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until you have made the best of them; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbors’ except their kindness of heart and gentleness of manners; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends and every day of Christ; and to spend as much time as you can with body and spirit, in God’s out-of-doors–these are the little guideposts on the footpath of peace.
