Soups and Fiona Biggs

This weekend was filled with lots of activities and thinking about large projects.  On Saturday, I took the girls to a local craft show and was happy to see a few new vendors with great displays.   I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s just amazing to see how many crafters are still using the same props and displays from years ago.   While I know that displays can be expensive, slight changes can make a huge difference.

Sunday was spent shopping, visiting the local dairy farm, and then finishing the day off at the apple orchard where we bought cider and lots of various squashes.  I mentioned that I have been on a kick for tasty squash soup and have already made 3 different batches – 2 with butternut squash and one with acorn.  This has expanded to cauliflower and carrot soup (which I will be making tonight).  For me, warm soup has therapeutic and cozy properties – it just makes me feel good all over.  I’m so glad that the girls not only love it, but that it warms up nicely from the freezer.

With all the variations of squash soup I’ve tested, I’m finding it necessary to document what works best.  So when I came across this completely cute recipe organization book by Fiona Biggs, My Recipe Keeper, I knew I had to buy it (especially with the $5.99 price tag!).  Under each category (i.e. desserts, meats, and yes, soups), there is space for logging your recipes or a pocket to simply place already written ones.  The author also provides many recipes as well as a section on “What Went Wrong” – troubleshooting undesirable results.  It’s finds like this that come out of shopping at my leisure (this was not only the last copy at the store, but was on the bottom shelf buried by other books).

I haven’t tried any of the recipes provided, but as soon as my soup phase passes, I hope to test them out!
