A First Birthday, Remembered

A First Birthday, Remembered

A rare photo with my dad (complete with the perpetual cigarette he always had) on my sister’s 1st Birthday! I do not remember this at all, and I would have been almost 5 years old. However, I do remember that double weave tablecloth in blue and white – almost Delft-like and most appropriate for where we lived. It is odd the things we remember!

Soup's On

Soup's On

It was had a fabulous year at our farmer’s market and add to that the abundance that was our garden this year and that makes lots of good food!

Sadly, Saturday was the last day our favorite farmer will be at the market  and we will miss him but look forward to June when he will be back at the market again! However, over the past weeks, I have been stocking up on winter squash, pumpkins, onions, and garlic. We were gifted a huge bag of apples, which will be cooked this week. However, the big winner was the 50 lbs. of potatoes that we got for practically nothing.

Yes, you read that right – 50 pounds – which is A LOT of potatoes…

When life gives you potatoes, the only thing to do is to make some hearty potato soup!
