Yes, the season is changing, announcing itself early before it's formal entrance.
COLD = SOUP
Soup made from summer tomato sauce, veggies, quinoa, parmesean and basil. I needed something to chase that frigid cold away! While the soup was bubbling along happily, I perused my shelves for perfect presentation of this savory sauce.... and came up with a bowl acquired back in the hot sweaty days of July. Sandra Silberman of http://www.blogger.com/www.dottipotts.com/ in Barrie, Canada makes wonderfully quiet textured porcelain pieces.
So I raise my bowl to those potters who keep me well fed and inspired! Who drives your creative juices in the kitchen??
