My brain is completely unable to wrap itself around the fact that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away!
Cliché as it sounds… where has 2013 gone and can I have it back?!
While I’m pretty sure I can’t fire up the Delorian, I can make the most of what’s left of the year. And that means tons of yummy Thanksgiving/Holiday/Christmas recipes to make and share. So let’s dive in!
If you don’t know me in “real” life or follow me on Twitter (@megpowesq) you might not know that Cleveland is one of my favorite cities in the whole wide world. I know, I know. Their sports teams suck… GO TRIBE, GO BROWNIES! Economic hardships are prevalent. I don’t care what you say, burn on big river, burn on! I truly love Cleveland.
If I’ve ever interviewed for an episode of “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” they’d have to do an entire show of me gushing over the meal I had at Lola, Michael Symon’s insanely amazing restaurant in C-land. Seriously, words cannot describe the tastebadic orgasm that happened the night I dined there.
So naturally, when this recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup came across my email with the fabulous Derek Clayton from Lola as the author, I had to try it.
There’s heat, there’s maple syrup, there’s cream and roasted, and sweet and yum! Oh, it’s divinity… I swear!
“We both have so much in common. We both love soup. And we love the outdoors. We love snow peas, and talking, and not talking. We could not talk or talk forever, and still find things to not talk about.”
What better way to drop a quote from one of my favorite movies, Best In Show, than announcing the birth of a new feature on this here old bloggy blog?
