Routines

Thursday, August 30, 2012




School is starting, the seasons are changing. When I go from one routine, like a summer one to a fall one, it always feels a little bittersweet but it also feels like a new door is opening. It's a perfect time to make changes I have been putting off to the side. Time to trade in the snacking on fruit all day long to slow cooked autumn meals with hearty veggies. Time to trade my working late into the night for even earlier mornings. Time to trade in my magazines for a good novel I can curl up with. But first I must try to get rid of this late summer cold! Or maybe it's an early fall one? While I have been taking it easy and snuggling up with my work, (the second photo is a custom order I am working on for a wedding - just finished it today!) - I have also been enjoying these little videos from Design Mom, Olive Us. Yep, it makes me want to move to France, even more than I already do, which is already a whole lot!

What have you been thinking about lately?

  1. That soup looks so inviting! My go to soup is matzo ball soup with sofrito and that is a routine all fall and winter every Thursday! Remember, Matzo Ball soup is Jewish penicillin so it may help that cold of yours!

  2. *sigh* Here in Florida we only know fall is coming when the kids go back to school, LOL! It's usually either hot or freezing, nothing much in between ;-)

    I was rummaging through my garage freezer and ran across a huge container of pumpkin mash. I almost took it out for a thaw but I thought it was too early. Your post reminds me it's that time of year to start making my yummy pumpkin soup and try new soup recipes. It also reminds me to curl up in front of the fire place and read or watch a chick flick. Ah, fall. Great post.

  4. The soup looks really good. What I have been thinking of lately..well one of the things on my mind is to learn how to cook different types of soups for the kids to eat.

    1. a sure fire way to get my little ones to eat veggies is in soups. this one is so simple to make. it's a favorite around here. all that is in it is: organic chicken thighs (cut up small), cabbage, carrots, onion, potato and celery - with free range chicken stock, fresh tarragon and sage, salt and pepper!

  5. The transition time in the kitchen to hot meals and hearty soups is a good one! Thanks for the nice share.
