Yes, I know how to spell SUPER...But we had more of a SOUPER weekend. I called up a few sweet friends who said they'd love to come over for lunch today and I decided that a variety of soups would be the menu. I started this on Saturday with a quick ride to the apple orchard. Let's back this up....Saturday morning I came bounding (hahaha..if you believe I "bound" anywhere!) down to the kitchen to find a lovely arrangement waiting for me. It was "Sweetest Day" and my Sweetie gave me these. Thanks Babe! Love them! Then we headed out down the long and winding road:
And down the straight and narrow path:
A path lined with apple trees.
To a local apple orchard to pick out some delish eating and baking apples...you may be wondering what apples have to do with soup. Well, dessert is needed isn't it? I'll show you the finished product directly.
My diningroom filled up with some good people who filed in right after Church was over to talk, laugh and enjoy a quick lunch of 3 different soups: Spicy Tortellini soup (made by Jack..and it was yummy!), Vegetable Beef soup, and Broccoli Cheese soup:
Soup on it's own just doesn't cut it. Atleast not in my home! I make a braided cheese bread that went along with all the soups.
Can you smell the fresh baked goodness yet?
I threw in a tossed salad...get it? THREW A TOSSED SALAD? Never mind. I really just wanted to show you my fun Halloween salad tongs!
Then we topped off the meal with some old fashioned Apple Slices (Here's where the trip to the Orchard makes sense!)
You just have to have some homemade vanilla icecream to go with those Apple Slices right? Yep! Sweet ending to a fun meal.
Later in the day I took the dog and headed up to the Creepy Woods for a little walk. With the leaves falling quickly, it's not so "Creepy" this time of year.
It's more open and the leaves line the paths and crunch under foot and smell so "fallish". Not a scent I think you'll find in any glade can!
It was a quiet time to sit and look up and realize how blessed we are. And give thanks to the Heavens above for a most lovely and SUPER weekend.
