Cat Food Salad

Here’s one of our favorite lunches. It’s quick, easy, and inexpensive, and we’re always surprised at how satisfying it is.

Definitely an all fall haul this week. Note the absence of any summer stragglers. (And how about the absence of ugly wallpaper? We’re painting our kitchen this week… or this month… definitely this year… I think.)

I have goat cheese!

Monday I went to visit Nancy and Jacque of Red Hott Tomatoes. (Yep, I needed goat cheese bad enough to drive to Bowdon.) Even more fun, Chris came with me.

I have been cooking this week – not just playing with Squash and Pumpkin.

Tea thyme!

Pennsylvania Dutch Tea Thyme is a wonderful surprise! It tastes almost like black tea – maybe even better. (Now can we grow it with a little caffeine?) I had a cup with a few hyssop flowers one afternoon and really enjoyed it.

The real reason I made the soup was to complement the beer bread. (more…)
