What a view!
C was pulling herself up and sucking on the playstands the other day. It was such a sweet thing to see. She's going to be crawling soon, I know it!! She started saying "mum mum mum" yesterday..hopefully Mama will be following!
I love the cooler weather. It makes me want to spend days in a cozy sweater and my apron cooking in the kitchen. In fact that's what I have been doing lately.
I got some yummy Lodge cast iron cookware a month ago or so from a co-op and I love it! Cast iron is so much easier to cook on than everyone had me believing it was. I have been making pankcakes on the cast iron griddle every morning and the taste so much better than my slowly killing us teflon griddle. My homemade pizza dough cooks a million times better on our cast iron pizza pan too.Not to mention that it puts iron into everything you cook on it. I'm in love!
Another favorite of mine is an oldie (I've had it almost 10 years now) but is being put to a lot of use lately. My Le Creuset pumpkin pot. I made some pumpkin soup in it on Halloween to bring to D'Anne's Halloween party. yum,yum!
We recently got the "Waldorf School Book of Soups" and decided to make the butternut squash soup recipe.
It started out looking like this:
and ended up like this:
It was super yummy,especially with our homemade whole wheat bread. I can't wait to try more recipes from this book!
