Our fickle weather finally switched to cold and blustery this weekend. The sky was gray; rain came in spurts and the wind howled. It was a nesting kind of day and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The benefit will be frozen homemade soup to bring out when I don’t have time to cook 🙂
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pam from Over 50 Feeling 40.
You’ve hit your Style Sweet Spot when your appearance is sending the message you intend, and you feel confident that you look your best. Last week we shared how we wear color. This week we’re dressing for our weekend.
I found this apron years ago at a small boutique in Livermore. The store has been out of business for a decade so I thought the aprons were too. I was delighted to learn they’re still in business!
These aprons are an investment, for sure, and now that I know they’re still available, one will be going on my Christmas list.
I cranked up Beethoven, tied on my apron and spent 5 hours at the stove. Pure bliss. I started with Curried Carrot Coconut soup, a family favorite.
Then I roasted some butternut squash for Risotto that I put atop toasted portobello mushrooms. I got this and many of my very best vegetarian recipes from Janet, here. Check her out!
I’m not a pro a photographing food so this looks grizzly, but trust me it was beyond delicious.
My back is sore from cooking all day, but I’m content and happy to have homemade soup in the freezer for when I can’t spend a day like this.
Let’s go see how Pam dressed for her fall weekend.
Do you love to cook like me?
Be well and be kind.
