Soups & Sweet Treat 9.20.12

I read in a weather blog on Wednesday that Burlington has had 79 days this year where the temperature has reached 80 degrees or more.  I almost didn’t believe it until I started thinking back to March and April and May and June and July and August and our current month September.  It has been hot.  I talk about weather a lot here…this is because I am a bit weather obsessed!  My husband owns a landscape company and I cook.  Both are very intertwined with the weather.  It looks like the 80 degree trend is about to break!  This coming week will feel much more like autumn, this makes me happy!

Greek Orzo, Lemon & Chicken Soup…I love this soup.  It is simple, flavorful & comforting.  It is also a good way to make use of late summer spinach!  Ingredients: chicken stock, orzo, local eggs, lemons, chicken breasts, local spinach, kosher salt & pepper.  garnished w. fresh dill.  13. per quart served w. bread for dunking.
