Last Saturday was chilly, so I made a pot of soup. Into it went the usual kitchen-y bits and bobs: leftover chicken and stock; the tail end of a summer squash from the farm up the road; red sweet pepper ditto; onion and garlic (fresh); carrot (flabby); a few lonely leaves of leftover spinach; tomatoes off the vine chopped whole and tossed in regardless, peel, seeds and all. Some salt and pepper and cayenne and nutmeg. A handful of fresh rosemary and thyme from the pots in the porch.
A good way to mark the first day of fall and bid farewell to summer.
