It's October and, hopefully, the el niño rains that we've heard so much about are on their way. I've started to think about soup again. A big steaming bowl of hearty soup is one of my favorite fall dinners. What makes this broccoli soup different is that the cream is made from cashews.

We picked the last of our Gala apples from the tree today, I think that qualifies as an official sign of fall! The apples are smaller than usual, which I assume is result of the drought. We did have one day of rain this week, which we never, ever get in September, the garden loved it. We're hoping this is a prelude to the very wet winter that has been predicted, and cross our fingers for a bigger crop next year.

My niece and I threw a baby shower brunch for my daughter a few weeks ago and I was so busy trying to get everything done on time that I forgot to take pictures. I think my daughter took this one, I snatched it from Facebook. There were yogurt parfaits, mini blueberry lemon scones, three types of finger sandwiches, veggies in hummus and chocolate coconut cupcakes to finish. We matched the food to children's books.
