Ivy’s Carrot Soup

When you see the title of my post Carrot Soup it may not be the 1st thing you want to try, but let me tell you this soup is AMAZING!! When my girlfriend got married our this was the starter that the “aunts” served at the Bridesmaid luncheon. It was so yummy that we all wanted to know what it was. Never did anyone think Carrots! For the record I thought Butternut Squash. It is so rich, velvety and just awesome. I dare you to tell me otherwise. It is even Man approved, just don’t mention what it is exactly!!
This is a great addition to any fall meal! ENJOY!!
