Butternut Squash Soup with Bacon

I’ll be honest, I haven’t been on the soup wagon my whole life. I know, how horrible right? But growing up I was only exposed to chicken noodle soup, which had lots of vegetables in it. And when I was a kid, veggies were NOT my thing. AT ALL. When we had chicken noodle soup, all I ate out of …
