Autumn Eats, Sounds, & Scents

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

Along with each season’s outdoor treasures, I also enjoy the inside change of seasonal menus.

Yesterdays dinner was a harvest soup with homemade bread. (Soup Recipe) I’ve tried several squash recipes, this is by far my favorite. This soup has a smooth texture and a zip from the ginger, but it doesn’t steal away the fabulous flavor of the butternut squash.

I’ve recently discovered candles from Swan Creek. They do mail orders or there are outlets you can visit.  If you are a candle lover, I highly recommend these. The price is reasonable, they never lose their scent and they burn complete. Swan Creek Outlet.

This past week has had the most vibrant colors above. A wonderful crisp crunch of leaf kicking below and an iciness in the breeze that says Falls Finale is near.

    *Hi Meline!* *One of my favorite autumn sounds since moving to Wyandotte is the distant vibrant strains of the HS marching band rehearsing. I also like to hear the cries of the Canadian Geese as they depart for warmer climes. My favorite autumn smell is the smokey musty fragrance of fallen drying leaves in the grass. * *Hope to see you in person one of these days! Maryjo*
