Fall foods

Mmm... Autumn is here in all her bone-chilling, drizzly, grey-days misery. The weater here always lets me know that my birthday and Halloween are just around the corner. Soon, the trees will be bare and my world's colour saturation will be turned down a bit. Skeletal branches reach up in pleading to the silver and leaden sky.

Although I have no windows here at work, I can still feel that weather in my mind. What food is better for this weather than some good soup? This weekend, P made a wonderful soup, and today, the cafeteria here had tomato soup and mozzerella sticks. They go together so well!

Soon enough the days will become very short (most noteably on the 29th), and the snows will start to fall with greater frequency. I'm enjoying this short window between the end of the summer weather and the start of the winter weather. Autumn never seems to get its full three months'.

See, that's another reason why you need to move to Colorado. We have Fall pretty much all winter long, which is a nice way to do it. Ok, so the leaves fall off over a finite amount of time, and then we get snow, but then the snow melts and we're back to Fall again. This lasts up to about Christmas, when finally winter begins and the weather gets serious about being cold.

And we have sun every day too. Just think of that. Sun, sun, sun, sun every day. You can get a tan here in the winter. People do.

I only need a few more reasons before I will, but one of them will probably have to be "You're rich and have a house here." :(

Speaking of fall food - I made a great butternut risotto the other nice. I got the recipies off of Epicurious and combined it with a recipe from the Williams-Sonoma catalog. It was really, really good.

And now I'm hungry.

Mmm... I'd drool, but I've just finished some Chinese food. Give me 30 minutes.

I agree, soup is great for these crisp cool autumn days.
Even Mutts has had soup in their comics - it's cute :)
The tomato soup and mozzerella stick combination sounds good too.
Your salty soup entry enspired me to try a golden carrot soup recipe. It was pretty good.

I like your autumn despcription.
To be honest I have been looking forward to autumn and oncoming winter.
