We're finally having fallish weather so we're inspired to cook fallish food. Tonight's dinner: "what do we have in the house" soup......
* pull 1 carton each turkey stock and veggie stock out of the freezer, thaw, plop in crockpot
* chop 1 onion, sautee in olive oil with 2 generous spoonfulls of chopped garlic, melt a couple tablespoons butter on top (because that was in the fridge and needed used), put oniony mixture in crockpot
* wash and chop 2 average spuds, add to pot
* wash and chop 2 big handfuls of baby carrots (or whatever you have left in the fridge), add to pot
* chop leftover smoked turkey drumstick (purchased at Renfest last weekend), add to pot
* trot out to garden for a sprig each of rosemary and sage, and two of thyme, rinse and add to pot
* turn crockpot up to high now that it's mostly full
* bask in the glow of dinner in progress

There will be mushrooms and yellow squash added too, later this afternoon, so they don't get overcooked. There's just enough salt in the smoked turkey that I won't have to add any to the soup (the stocks were prepared sans salt, for more flexibility).

And there will oatmeal bread, for dipping in soup.
