Hello, friends. I’ve been working on a few new recipes, but I want to test them out a few more times before sharing them with you. For today, I have an easy dinner idea that I have done a few different ways plenty of times over the past three years or so. It’s not really a recipe, but I hope you still get inspiration from it and try it out yourself.
I like having the ingredients on hand for an easy meal like this so I can have a healthy lunch or dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.
I’m so glad it’s fall! Or at least, it feels like it should be fall. Even though it’s still 90 degrees in Southern California and will stay around those temperatures until late October, most likely. But just 12 days until it’s officially fall!
I’ve started decorating the house for fall with a fake leaf garland above the mantle, candles, a few small decorations, and later in the month, I’ll put the Halloween things out. I’m not too crazy about Halloween because I’m a baby and it used to scare me growing up. You will never see me at a haunted house. I’m getting into the idea of Halloween a little now though, especially because my husband and his family like it.
When I was growing up my mom used to make this soup creamy broccoli soup that actually made vegetables enjoyable. It reminds me a little bit of pot pie, which is probably because the base is a creamy white sauce made with a roux. It’s enough to make me want to start all my soups from roux and caramelized onions.
