What a wonderful week this has been, my favorite thus far. It's quite possible that we had soup every night this week. One was smooth, another was noodle-y, there were some that tasted like leftovers (because they were), and yesterday's was thick and chunky, and I think husband's favorite. I laughed at husband's comment before leaving for work one morning, he said the babe and I were so lucky to be able to stay home and play with such magical weather outside. We both stayed in our pj's until late afternoon, there was a lot of snuggling and out-the-window watching going on. It has infected everyone, autumn does this to people.
So far this weekend I have baked a lot of goodies, some for a book club gathering (my first ever) and others for the groundbreaking for Jacob's Cove's new farmland in Midway, Utah. If you are in the area this morning, come join us. There will be delicious food (some apple molasses cookies included), and so much to learn and see as they celebrate this exciting new step in utah's real food movement.
I will also probably make the eggplant and summer squash gratin pictured above, because I picked up a number of beautiful squash from my parent's home the other day, and it's one of our favorite meals. Do you still have summer squash after this magical (and chilly) week?
have a wonderful weekend, what's left of it.
