On a side note, it's starting to get really chilly. Not shut all the windows chilly, but throw another blanket on the bed chilly. This means that soup season is upon us! One of my favorite things to do on a chilly weekend day is to throw a bunch of random ingredients into my dutch oven and slow cook the crap out of it. Stews, soups, chilis, chowders, I love them all and can't wait to start heating up some new recipes. My brain and belly are already working on a few new flavor combos. Also, football season is in full swing and I've yet to make any tailgate worthy foods. Shame on me! Stay tuned for some serious snackage that's sure to score.
I've also started planning for Thanksgiving. Though my t-day plans are yet to be determined, the menu is nearly finalized. Even though I probably won't be in charge of the whole shebang since I'm sure wherever I end up the feast will be a combined effort, I will end up making nearly the entire traditional feast for myself because that's how much I like leftovers. Leftovers and challenges. But, to be honest, I may not end up blogging it all because admitting to eating an entire Thanksgiving spread on my own is kind of embarasing... granted I just told the entire world wide web about it so maybe I should just get over it and share every menu item I come up with! Then again, maybe I won't. But you can bet your bottom dollar that you will be seeing an appetizer, a side, a dessert and a cocktail. Only 3 more weeks til the big day!
So folks, send over your contest submissions (or anything else you feel like sharing - a recipe, a kind word) and keep your fingers crossed that I deem your Halloween getup more awesome than the rest. And rev up your engines for the next super amazingly awesome holiday - Thanksgiving!
