It's all about the food, fool.....

Keeping within the great tradition of un-read blogs everywhere (except for Twisty's "I Blame the Patriarchy"), I now present for you what I've been cooking:
Butternut Squash Soup
Sweet Potato & Apple casserole
Raspberry Cheesecake
Pumpkin Pie

I worked Thanksgiving Day, so this has all taken place on Sat. and today, my days off from work. Rhiannon & I took a fabulous hike today as well. We set a bruising pace, no mere mortal could have kept up with us, the Trail Queens!!! Next culinary project: preparing the humongous pumpkin I acquired by slightly duplicitous means.

refusing to let you think that there aren't lurking stalkers out there (by the way, you are out of milk).. did your butternut squash soup turn out ok? I need a good recipe.

Oh yes, it did turn out quite good. I got the recipe from the "Chef's Catalog". Here's my adaptation: Roast a huge butternut squash (I added some rosemary, sage & bay leaves from the garden while roasting). Saute a large yellow onion, 3 medium carrots, 3 stalks celery, 3 huge garlic cloves until the onions are translucent.Add 1 small head of savoy cabbage; shredded, and one bunch of Swiss Chard, chopped. Dump in one 28-oz. can of roma tomatoes, 1 15-oz. can of cooked cannellini beans and 8 cups of veggie broth. Add some tamari sauce and black pepper. Cook for about an hour on low heat (lightly bubbling). Then break out your BRAND-NEW "stick" blender and puree the soup. Serve with toasted cheese bread. Yeah, baby!!
