autumn around the corner


Walking home and seeing the leaves starting to change colour with the sky all moody and beautiful, I feel Autumn is ready to burst soon. Because of the weather, soup has been on my list to make. What are some of your favourite soup recipes?

  1. yes! I feel like soup season is around the corner :)
    I just made coconut-carrot-ginger soup...so heartwarming and comforting :)

  2. these are really magic!!!
    the colors are so wonderful....

  3. I like the music by Junip! Thanks.

  4. ahh! the first photo.
    it looks like a painting.
    fall is really coming. *sigh* it was such a great summer

  5. what is it about power lines that are just so cool in photos? these are, once again, so lovely.

    sadly, I have no go-to soups recipes...must find one.

  6. i agree this are magic!! :) beautiful

  7. My favorite soup recipe is very easy.
    Take a box of Pacific Butternut Squash Soup and pour it in a baking dish with sauteed zucchini, carrots, peas, fresh butternut squash, and seitan (wheat gluten meat substitute). Take Bisquick and create dumplings (see back of the box) and dollop them into the soup mix. Add some salt and pepper and bake until the dumplings are cooked.
    SO GOOD.

    I love you post by the way. I spent half my time today staring at orange leaves.

  8. I am excited for fall. The leaves will be so beautiful. My favorite soup is a toss up between Carrot ginger and Tom Ka. Yum.

  9. Autumn has always been my favorite season, especially early autumn. I rarely use recipes for my soups, but they often include items such as beans, greens, tomatoes, stock, fresh herbs. Chili is a favorite too. I'm experimenting tomorrow with a different sort of chili--butter beans, yellow wax peppers, orange and yellow heirloom tomatoes, cilantro... Okay, this is getting long. One more thing. I haven't made this recipe yet, but saw it today and it looks simple and beautiful. http://www.food52.com/blog/1159_cream_of_roasted_tomato_soup

  10. I'm all about the soup right now! Fall is the best for that. I really love this corn chowder recipe: http://www.macheesmo.com/2010/08/corn-chowder-recipe/ and the butternut squash soup recipe from A Homemade Life.

  11. i love your vision of autumn. the first picture. marvellous !

  12. Such pretty photos. And ah! I love Junip--they've been on repeat at my house for the past week or so. As for soup, I just made this Chard & Artichoke one over the weekend and it was tangy and delicious: http://www.farmgirlfare.com/2008/12/crossover-foods-simple-and-healthy.html

  13. I feel it too -and I'm just not ready yet!!

  14. love your pictures.

    I made carrot soup today, it was good.

  15. M.: That sounds so good!

    Elisabelle: Thank you so much.

    Cynthia: High-5! for Junip, it's good stuff.

    Celine: I feel the very same. This morning I felt a few leaves crunching under my feet as I walked...it's so very close that Autumn!

    tanya: I used to avoid power lines in my photos and then one day I embraced them and haven't looked back. I'm glad you like them so.

    Barbara: Thank you!

    Nicomi: I'm intrigued by your dish! It sounds like it will be hearty and delicious. Thank you for sharing! I too am starting to stare at the leaves around me.

    Chelsea: You are speaking my language with your choices, sweet!

    Denise: I too love to throw together a soup and tomato soup just happens to be a favourite. I'm terribly excited with the recipe you linked to. I hope your chili turned out scrumptious. I'm enjoying your words from your trip so much.

    Megan: Your corn chowder pick looks so so good (Thank you for the link) and I too have tried Molly's Butternut Squash Soup...it's amazing!

    Marion: It stopped me in my tracks when I saw that tree and home, thank you for your sweet words.

    Maggie: You have such good taste in music! And as for that soup...you had me at tangy and delicious, thank you!

    Ida: haha, I hope you will be soon! I imagine with all your lovely knitting you have some great things to wear for Autumn. I hope your Photography class is going well.

    Lotte: oh Yummy! I had some tomato basil soup for lunch and I wanted to lick the bowl clean, but I held back thinking people in the book shop might find it odd...but it was that good!

  16. vegetable soup, corn chowder, potato and zucchini soup. autumn weather definitely calls for warm foods (:

  17. Last year I ate ginseng soup for the first time. Great!

  18. same here, the leaves are slowly turning and the skies are dramatic. such a special time of year.

    the other day i tried mav's zucchini soup with coconut milk and curry. so good. i also would like to try my hand at mushroom soup as chanterelles are in season - haven't found a recipe yet.

  19. sarah: I so agree!

    rc: That is good stuff for sure.

    kristina: Those both sound so great and speaking of mushrooms, I saw a recipe for wild mushroom risotto in the latest bon appetit magazine. I never realized it before, but mushrooms are a sign of Autumn to me. Thank you for the ideas!

  20. oh the first picture is so nice! :--)
