butternut squash soup

Roast squash at 400 degrees until soft.  While squash roasts, cook chopped bacon in a dutch oven.  Retain rendered fat to saute onion and garlic until translucent.  Add coconut milk, goat cheese, and spices.  Once butternut squash is soft, scoop out and add to mixture in dutch oven.  Blend/smooth with an immersion blender, or pour into standard blender to smooth out.  Add chicken stock to desired soup thickness.
