Autumn

Here are a few pictures of this evening's fall colors, as well as a new soup I tried (creamy red lentils with a caramelized onion and cumin seed garnish):





And, for old times, another self-portrait in my dirty rear-view mirror:

That soup recipe sounds delicious—and perfect for getting me to eat the red lentils in my cupboard. I shall have to try it. Did you use actual ginger root? The trees are gorgeous; ours are turning also and the drive to and from work is beautiful but depressing (because it's practically dark in the morning and threatening sunset by the drive home too).

I love the colors of fall. Looks like you've got a lot more contrast as far as that is concerned in your area. Over here mostly everything just tends to turn brown.

I miss autumn so much this year. Those are beautiful pictures.

Heather, yes, real ginger is a must--and super easy! You can store peeled chunks of it in your freezer basically indefinitely, and just grate it up when you need some. I put it in just about anything that I want to have a nice warming spiciness.

And thanks for the compliments on the pictures! It speaks to the beauty of the colors that just camera phone pix show them off.
