Time for Soup!


As we get ready
to...

turn back the clocks,

crank up the heat,

add layers of socks to warm our chilly feet...

we'll bring out the down and the flannel sheets,

And cook up something hot to eat!

This chill in the air is all the more reason,
For good hearty food...




...it's back to soup season




I   love   this   soup...

 Winter Squash Soup w/Chipotle Peppers & Cream 


This recipe just says Comfort to me!  Many of you already know that my husband runs the other way when this soup is served...

I  j u s t   d o n 't   u n d e r s t a n d ! 

Of course, each time I make it, I love to ask him...
"did you ever taste it?"  
That goes over well!  ;) 




As my husband sticks with his sandwich and chips,
I'll enjoy this heartwarming soup and the leftovers!



Oh, since I last made this, I've switched to "gluten free" pasta for my pasta sauce variation of this recipe...I love quinoa pasta - 
I like it for its taste, texture, and health benefits... 



!! Don't forget to turn back your clocks this week-end !!
They say we should do it at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday...
I've never figured out why!
REALLY....does anyone wait up until 2 a.m.
to change their clocks?! 

My husband always changes every clock in the house
 right around 6 p.m. on Saturday...

but that "throws me for a loop"...

that's why I make this soup!  (wink)   ;)


here's the recipe:

Tricks for Treats

video

Abby the Wonderdog!!!

We made this video of Abby two years ago...Since then she has added a few more tricks to her routine.  Hard to believe Abby is now nine years old! She never ceases to amaze us...but in typical dachsund fashion, she has "us" trained....no tricks without her treats! :)



Did somebody mention treats?
