Winter = soup. Plain and simple. The only thing more comforting than soup in the winter is an entire side of beef (preferably made into chili), but that's the exact reason I come out of the cold, dark months with more than a few extra pounds, so I try to veer myself to soups more often than not. Of course, leave it to me to take a soup and find a way to both make it on the grill and with the unhealthy addition of fatty meat. So maybe this butternut squash soup with sweet Italian sausage may not spare my seasonally expanding gut, but it certainly makes me a happy eater.
