You’re looking at the title of this post and probably wondering if this known meat mouth has probably lost it, right? Don’t worry my friends. I haven’t. But I have found something I can’t wait to share with you besides today’s spicy Butternut Squash soup and that’s the people who helped bring those ingredients to me, along with some beautiful fresh produce, meat, fish and fruit juices. Say hello to D' Market Movers.
My girl Hazel is responsible for putting me in touch with these lovely people who deliver fresh groceries to your door. I should also note that they are also environmentally conscious food growers that are doing their part to help others reduce their carbon footprint as well. This recent Outlish article explains their story and philosophy best, and you can click on the link above as well.
Believe me, I was a little scared about ordering fresh produce online, and if you’ve been to the market or grocery and had to deal with spotty vegetables, it can put you off. But Hazel assured me, “…Halcy, their vegetables are fresh, the fruit is nice and ripe and the prices are good. And the people give you quality all the way. Trust me.”
And thanks to you, Hazel, Market Movers is now my mobile go-to grocery and I love that they can deliver to my workplace or at home. Owners David and Rachel are two of the most amazing people you will ever meet and you can see that they really care about what they do. I was so excited after getting my delivery that included (among other things) sweet potatoes, Granny Smith apples, plantain, fresh thyme and that beautiful butternut squash, that tired as I was that day, I was anxious to cook and eat them… which brings me to my soup du jour…
I broke down the butternut squash by chopping off the slender half. I peeled off all the skin and then cut the round part in half so I could scoop out the seeds and then chop it in a large dice.

|Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you my Spicy Butternut Squash Soup.|
I shall now confess that that this bowl of soup was the only one I got. The rest was quickly dispatched by my family; actually my daughter in particular, hahaha! As the only fish and vegetable eater in a house of meat mouths, she staked her claim pretty early. No matter, I can always whip it up again – it’s in my head. But I am willing to share the recipe, so just ask if you need it. :-)
So, til next time we meet, my friends. My body is still tired from the previous work week and I am taking every inch of rest that I can. Don’t forget to check out Market Movers soon; they are also on Facebook. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and like I always say, doh forget to mind de pot!
Take care, everyone! :-)
