Fall is definitely here, and that means it’s time for soups. I was reading through my feeds and found this one posted by Chaviva:

2 green apples, large dice
2 sweet potatoes, large dice
1 regular potato, large dice
1 yellow onion, small dice
1/2 can organic coconut milk
water (or vegetable broth)
olive oil
toasted walnuts

  1. Sautee the onion until translucent.
  2. Add cinnamon.
  3. Pour in the apples, potatoes, and enough water to cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook for about a half-hour or until everything is tender.
  4. Pour in the coconut milk, dabble with the spice mixture, and puree.
  5. Once you’ve gotten the flavor right — to your liking, you’ll figure it out — top with toasted walnuts and enjoy.


Denise is in the kitchen making homemade french fries, and I’m in here tweeking the site again. I think I’ve found a theme that will support post formats, which will more properly allow me to play with asides and other post types. Let’s see how this goes. This theme seems to have a ton of options so maybe I can customize it to my liking.
I am standing outside Weight Watchers after my weekly weigh in. I was down 0.2. This is a good thing, since I have been up for the last two weeks. I am hoping to be able to continue the trend. The downtrend, that is. The Salvation Army is already out this yea r ringing their bells. I guess with the economy being so hard on everyone, they have to start early.
