Acorn Squash and Roasted Onion Bisque

They say, a picture paints a thousand words; in this case it makes my mouth water. Roasting brings out the nuttiness of the acorn squash and the rich caramelized sweetness of the onion.  Blended together, they form the perfect Fall bisque.  This bisque would be perfect for Thanksgiving; or serve with a dense, crusty bread as a meal.
