soup du jour
sometimes, it takes seeing a photo of soup to remind you to buy a butternut squash and it couldn't have happened on a better day than yesterday. it is cold here in south texas. i had been inspired by my friend amy's soup...i flipped it a bit and sauteed shallots with the onions (just sliced onions, not diced) and it was still wonderful. it would have been perfect with crumbled mexican fresh cheese, but queso quesadilla was just fine. (just in case you forget to add the cream or thyme, too, i am hear to report that it is still muy delicioso!)
after a full day of work, it was one of those days that to cook, clean up, get things ready for the next day and get in bed with a book and a cup of tea was sound agenda.
