Today I woke up to a soft drizzle and it has kept up most of the afternoon. On rainy fall days I always get inspired to put on a big pot of homemade soup. Since we just had roast chicken this weekend and I have never in my life thrown away a poultry carcass...I made chicken soup. My favorite part of soup making is chopping up all the vegetables. I received a food processor as a gift one year and used it to cut up my veggies a few times. I quickly went back to my good old Santoku knife. I like to be in control and you don't get that with a processor. Plus they are horrible to have to clean...too much trouble. So after much carcass simmering, meat off the bone picking and veggie chopping..and some more simmering, I am rewarded with this............
A hot and delicious (if I do say so myself) big pot of chicken soup. I'll be popping some flakey homemade biscuits in the oven just before my man arrives and I will be in heaven. Not sure which I get more excited about...my man or the soup and biscuits ;-)
While waiting for my soup to cook, I put the finishing touches on my latest scarf. I will be posting it in my Etsy shop this afternoon. I am thinking of naming it the 'Etsy' scarf in reference to the many different artists with a presence on Etsy. Although unique in background and beliefs, when brought together they become a beautiful riot of diversity. I'm really loving this scarf..may have to keep it for myself.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
