It’s only 73° today and will be hovering in the low 70s and high 60s for the rest of the week, with a chance of RAIN Fri-Mon!! Autumn is coming! So I made soup to celebrate, and to use up some extra milk.

Kara’s Potato-Onion Soup

Slice up a big onion and saute in a lot of butter on low heat until it’s soft. Add 3 tbsp flour and cook, stirring, for a minute or so. Add 2c beef broth (or whatever broth is handy), 2c milk, and a few diced potatoes. Season with salt, pepper, and a dash of thyme. Cook on low heat until the potatoes are soft. Voila!

We just got our veg box! Pears, apples, peaches, an onion, a bundle of spinach, a big romaine lettuce, two small heads of bok choi, fancy mushrooms, a pound of green beans, two ears of corn, and a lemon. Fantastic! Also got my standing order of ethically-produced local milk and eggs.

I finished Garden Story yesterday, so now I’m impatiently waiting for Dorfromantik to be released in a couple weeks.

Forgot to say — I’m back down to 98lbs. SIGH. But I’m doing my best to eat more protein every day. Both of us definitely feel a little bit better every day, but my rib is still incredibly painful and Dave’s injuries are still killing him. We moan and groan and carry on all day and night :D
