this soup. It was simple and delicious and made our whole house smell like Fall. We went grocery shopping for the party this weekend, and came home to the toasty smell of tomatoes still in the air. Our counter is overflowing with veggies from Montreal and our fridge is stocked for multiple big family meals. It's only Monday, and I can't wait.
I love birthdays that go on and on, piggybacking on other birthdays and occasions. This season just has that feeling, like we should all be together at a big sprawling table with barely any room for our elbows, food in the oven and candles burning. Don't you think?
