Will Fall ever get here? Last week we had a few blissfully cool days that almost felt like Fall, and this week it is back to shorts and t-shirt weather. Everywhere I look, it seems like people are desperately trying to will the summer away. Pumpkin spice everything is everywhere, and I’ve seen hints of flannel and scarves. Yes scarves! Maybe only the thin linen ones, but scarves are out in 90 degree weather. We seem to be collectively trying to tell summer to take a hike already, and I’m totally guilty of joining in the wishful thinking. If I just make split-pea soup, it will feel like Fall!
It totally did!!!!
I made this wonderful split pea soup, and briefly, with the table set with fresh bread, bowls of steaming green goodness, and the thermostat down a bit; it felt like fall. If you are from a warm climate, join the collective denial. It’s October darn it, and it is Fall.
