Add butternut squash, vegetable stock and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind. Heat until mixture is just simmering, then turn heat to low and cook gently for about 20 minutes, partially covered, until vegetables are soft and tender.Remove rind from saucepan, transfer soup to blender or food processor and add most of the grated cheese, reserving about 25g (1oz) for garnishing. Blend soup for 15-20 seconds, until completely smooth. Return it to saucepan and add milk. Stir thoroughly and reheat until piping hot. Taste and adjust seasoning.Meanwhile, toast slices of French bread, sprinkle remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano on top and grill until melted.

If you have any left over, simply roast it until tender to serve as a vegetable with another meal. To store the soup, cool it quickly, then refrigerate for up to three days, or freeze for up to three months.

National Credit Union Administration Chair Debbie Matz announced Thursday that she will seek to streamline the agency’s community charter process. Matz addressed the matter while the board considered an expansion request from Charlotte Metro FCU of Charlotte, N.C. during its monthly meeting.“The Office of Consumer Protection will decide on expansion requests, and if a request is denied, the credit union can appeal to the board,” Matz said, adding that she expected this action could reduce the application process by as much as two months.The change would affect federal credit unions serving communities with more than one million residents. Those credit unions must currently receive approval from the NCUA board for an expansion.CUNA praised the NCUA for addressing the area of regulatory relief.“We thank the agency for streamlining the process for gaining agency approval for field of membership expansion requests,” said Elizabeth Eurgubian, CUNA’s deputy chief advocacy officer. “This is an important first step in modernizing the field of membership process.” continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
