I saw this recipe on Marion's blog and thought it sounded great. I love a good creamy soup. (This photo is from her blog)
Here is the recipe and at the end I'll tell you what I did differently.

I'm addicted to their color and the feel of these velvety yarns. I also bought a new size of needle, and have determined that this winter, I'm going to get on youtube and learn to knit new stitches and maybe even how to do cables.
I really want to be able to knit sweaters for my grands, and I may try mittens this year. Kennedy is definitely getting a hat for her little, nearly bald head!
Do you knit or crochet? If so how did you learn? I learned to knit from a Klutz book, and have used the basic knit, purl ever since!

This weekend was all about our Fall Fest. Friday night though, Tim and I went to dinner with the realtors that sold my parents house. Tim does inspections for them during the year, and he always highly recommends them for buying or selling a house. They wanted to thank us for the referral and they said the sale for my parents house was so easy and smooth. Apparently that doesn't happen very often.
On Saturday, I went to the pumpkin wagon and bought four pumpkins for $6.00. Two pumpkins were $2 each and two were $1 each.
After church, and a lunch of fund raiser pretzel bread sandwiches (perfect for a busy afternoon) we set up tables on our driveway for hot and cold drinks and food. Kay made her excellent chili, we had hot dogs, and people brought something to share. We had cider we bought at our local produce stand. They make their own and we love it.
Tim and the guys (Kyle, Nate, and Wes) hung our outside lights on our patio area, and we had my fire ring and lots of seating on the patio.

The zinnia are getting powdery mildew so they'll be going soon, too. I think I'll try to cut as many as I can today. I'm also going to cut a lot of Limelight Hydrangea. The colors are so pretty right now and they dry beautifully.

I found some lovely tea things on Saturday. They are unique and have started me on a new collection.

The weekend started out on Thursday evening, because Klaire and Kamryn spent the night! They came home with Kyle and I after co-op and stayed over because Friday morning we had our annual Fire Safety Day at the Kinzer Fire Company! I think this was our 19th year!
Here is my dad sitting in the hall during the video presentation. Lots of good information, an impactful video about why you should always sleep with your door closed, good questions by the kids, and many happy families! We had a huge turnout from the co-op this year, about 140 people!
