The weather is starting to turn. There is a chill in the air. It makes me grab a fleece (I know, you just said to yourself, fleece? Major Knitter grabs a fleece -- not a sweater? Sadly, it's true). This is my favorite time of year. I'm sure it has something to do with my birthday being in October. At any rate, fall is my favorite season of the year. It always has been. I know it's officially fall when I start buying apples by the peck, wearing fleeces, and looking for new soup recipes. Here are three soups from this week's Troop ladies luncheon:
Lasagna Soup - recipe courtesy of Estella. This soup is to-die for!
Here's a vegetarian French Lentil soup. Yum. Perfect for fall.
Finally, a Potato and Leek soup. Unfortunately, I was short a leek, so this soup was a little lackluster. I should have run out to the store... instead, I announced that it was lacking in zest and called it the Potato Leek lacking Leek Soup. The recipe is amazing (when followed, which I did not since I was short a leek!). It's a classic and favorite of mine.
It was a wonderful fall luncheon. I used BF's grandmother's dishes that she gifted us earlier this year. I thought a girly-girl lunch was the perfect opportunity to use them. To top it off, I baked my Grandma Grace's sugar cookies for dessert. I was channelling grandmothers this meal. It was a great to have some girl time and enjoy some new recipes. If you like soup, I highly recommend giving these three a try.
