It's officially fall here. A cold front came through at the beginning of the week and the weather has been "delightful" as my weatherbug says. It's been cool enough in the morning for me to wear a jacket to work. Unfortunately my office is cold enough for me to have to keep wearing the jacket most of the day.
My favorite part of fall is eating fall foods, especially pumpkin. I made my favorite pumpkin soup this week. I first saw the recipe in the food section of our paper two years ago and had to make it for dinner that day. I later found out it's a Racheal Ray recipe. Nevertheless, it has become one of my favorite fall dishes. I make it with vegetable stock instead of chicken. Also, this time I used 2% milk instead of heavy cream in an effort to be healthier. Neither Jeremy nor I could taste the difference.
I also made homemade rolls to go with the soup. I used my new favorite roll recipe, compliments of Tasty Kitchen. They are divine. And, I actually used the bread basket we got for our wedding as an actual bread basket! Usually I put fruit in it since we don't have a fruit bowl. It works better for bread though. Shocking, I know.
Next pumpkin food to make: Pumpkin bread, or pumpkin pancakes. I can't decide.
