I want to do more seasonal cooking. Anyone have any season specific standby recipes that you and your kids love?

I'd love to say yes, but dd rarely eats what I cook, even though it's based on the seasons. I usually let the food at the farmer's market inspire my menu, but my planning has been a little off lately, sorry.
I'm not sure where I got this recipe. Either family circle magazine or my kraft food magazine.
Apple Butternut Squash Soup
2 tbsp butter
1 med onion, chopped
1/8 tsp nutmeg
6 cups chopped butternut squash
2 medium granny smith apples, peeled and chopped
3 cans veg. broth
1/2 c. honey nut flavored cream cheese
Melt butter in large pot. Add onions, cook 4 minutes, until soft, but not browned. Stir in nutmeg, cook 1 minute. Add squash, apples, and broth. Boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer 50 minutes until squash and apples are tender. Cool slightly. Process in blender in batches until smooth. Cook on low until heated through. Add cream cheese for garnish.
I love this soup, I have a butternut squash in my garden that is almost ready to be picked, and I plan on making this with it! I absolutley love the cream cheese with it too.
