The colors of fall

Today brings one of the first rains of the season in San Francisco and truthfully I really like the grayness of the skies. I suppose I am just a true New Englander at heart. I like being a bit cold.  It makes you want to cuddle.

Yesterday, I spent my day at Terra Firma Farms in Winters, California for their annual Farm Day. It was wonderful. There was strawberry picking, hay rides, a country swing band, and wine tasting. A all around lovely day full of sunshine and pumpkins. I love the fall and all the beautiful rich colors it brings.

Now... I'm off to cook up my first Butternut Squash soup of the season. I'm going with the Moosewood Cookbook recipe here, the added sage makes it perfect.
