Sitting here pinning and pinning recipes and thinking about how excited I am that Fall is just around the corner. I've been promising myself for a couple of years that I would work on learning how to make a good soup ... I know - seems like a no brainer but our house didn't really do soup when I was growing up! - and learning how to make yeast bread. I've always wanted to but am a little intimidated by the thought of it. It always looked so complicated when my mom did it. Tasted GREAT but looked complicated.

I've often told my hubby if we lived back in the days of the pioneers, that poor guy would have starved to death. I couldn't imagine finding it, killing it, cleaning it and cooking it before we ate!

We're off to celebrate my hubby's birthday ... Chow for now!

    I like soups. Mom always made hearty soups, here they are very thin. I am very intimidated by yeast. Never done it before...let us know about your successes!

    I adore soup. It wasn't a meal according to my family when I was growing up but when I was in residence at university we had soup every day at lunch. I loved it. My fave now is probably hamburger soup which is so delish. The Best of Bridge was a cookbook that came out about 30 years ago and that was the star recipe as far as I was concerned.
    Do you have a bread maker? That's my way/the easy way to make bread tho my dd has had great luck with the new no-knead recipes that take about 2 days.
