A Golden World – Tasty Soup!

Wow — We’ve really been experiencing a longer-than-usual Autumn.  So many leaves still on the trees — Some still green, but so many creating a gorgeous golden world.


And then, last night, the first snowfall — Wet, sloppy, slushy snow.  The first true reminder that Autumn must end, and a Minnesota Winter will be returning.  Of course, we still have so many golden leaves….

What could be better with a first snowfall — A tasty soup!!  A ‘good-stuff’ soup — In a special new bowl….

The Food — Soup with Potato, Carrot, Kale & Parmesan:

I’m calling this a ‘Good-Stuff’ Soup — Full of good, healthy stuff (Kale alert).  Easy and tasty; comfort food.  I sauteed onion and garlic, added plenty of chicken broth, then chopped carrot and potato, rosemary and bay leaf.  After simmering for a bit, I added white beans and chopped kale.  Simmered a bit more and served with plenty of Parmesan cheese!  Yummy — It all worked; and the kale provides a perfect bit of texture.  Note — If I make this again, I’ll probably add a bit of smokey bacon.

The Pottery — Bowl by Steve Rolf:

I chose a lovely bowl I recently acquired — Made by Wisconsin Artist, Steve Rolf.  Dark smooth stoneware, gently faceted, soft, satin glaze.  Lovely!  And perfect for a hearty (healthy), colorful soup on a first snowy evening.

And — A Workshop with Steve Rolf….

This seems like a perfect/appropriate time to mention a Steve Rolf Workshop — Next week, November 15th, at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.  A bit more info….
