Soups & Sweet Treat 9.28.17

Summer continues into Autumn.  It feels strange to be thinking about soup today- school sports practices are cancelled due to the heat index in the 90s, I spent a good portion of the day yesterday floating around in lake Champlain, and slept with the fan on high.  However, and this makes me happy, the weather is going to shift while we are asleep Wednesday night into the early hours of Thursday morning.  Thursday, soup day, will feel like FALL!!  Highs in 60’s, winds out of the northwest- ahhhh.  I can’t wait.  Celebrate the late arrival of fall with a quart or two of soup!

Minestrone Soup…While minestrone is good anytime of year, I think it tastes best in fall when packed full of late summer local veggies & herbs.  Ingredients: leeks, olive oil, garlic, carrots, parsnips, celery, zucchini, fresh rosemary, fresh parsley, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, white beans, veggies stock, acini di pepe (or other very small pasta), kosher salt, and pepper.  Garnished w. optional Parmesan cheese.  13. per quart served w. bread.  Vegetarian, Vegan (minus parm) & Gluten-Free (minus pasta).

“Hamburger” Soup…A riff on the classic beef and barley made with local ground turkey as opposed to beef.  This soup is popular with both kids and adults.  Ingredients: Onions, carrots, celery, garlic, local ground turkey, tomatoes, barley, oregano, thyme, basil, ketchup (sounds strange but it is the secret ingredient), kosher salt & pepper.  Garnished w. Parmesan cheese.  13. per quart served w. bread.

Apple Cake- 2. per slice

This weeks soups will be what was offered, but canceled, last week.
