Many things to love about fall...including breaking out the soup recipes. This weekend's star ingredient: fennel.
Yotam Ottolenghi's Chickpea, Tomato, and Bread Soup recipe from his book "Plenty" worked perfectly. Wish it was possible to share the yummy smells that came from the cutting board as I chopped up fennel, carrots, celery, onions, parsley, oregano, and thyme to toss into the soup.
After a morning of digging around the gardens and raking the mounds of pine needles and leaves in the back yard, it was great coming in to a lovely warming meal.
We don't have any shows this month, but want to let you know about the Maine Harvest Festival in Bangor, ME November 16-17, 2013. Not too early to mark your calendars for this fun, foody, crafty event.
Also, wanted to give a shout out to Archipelago in Rockland, ME. We sent them a package of towels the end of last week, including our new chickadee tea towel design. If you're in that area, please stop by and say hello for us!
Feel free to share your favorite soup recipe below. You can also find us on facebook or at our Etsy shop.
Hope your week's a good one!
