    1. So I made the Parsnip and ginger soup (page 157) as well as the Lentil and tomato salad (page 237) today - the soup was very "warming" with all that ginger and the spices (cardamon, cumin and cayenne pepper). And the Lentil salad was a big hit with those Honey-roasted tomatoes - even tomatoes at this time of year are suitable for that recipe.

  8. Hi Andrea,

    Here are my selections for the month:

    Parsnip and ginger soup (page 157)

    Roast new potatoes with two mojo sauces (page 358)

    I might make the soup this weekend - it's cold and rainy and that soup sounds so warming.

    1. Teresa, cold and rainy seems far away these days - we are having springtime weather - incredible! I do not know whether to be happy about all these warm fall days though. Seems to me that the weather is definitely changing for the warmer.

  9. Hi Andrea! I can't believe how far we've gotten in the book. So many delicious dishes we've made!

    I don't know what all I will get up to, but for the moment, I'm thinking Parsnip and ginger soup, and Lentil and tomato salad. The new potatoes look delicious... we'll see! Sorry I'm not as decisive as I'd like. Lots up in the air. Hope you are having a wonderful fall day!

  10. Hi Andrea, I finally decided today (it's the 7th), that I'd better skip November. I not only am getting my condo ready so The Gant can have it for a rental for the skiing season but I also am packing for being away from Aspen for 5 1/2 months. A little overwhelming. Back next month when I get settled. Also, I'm up for a make-up week anytime.

    1. Dear Mary, noted - thank you - I am thinking about a December make-up month although we just had one. Because we all see to be rather busy the next two months - but have not decided yet.
      All the best for your 5 1/2 months move!
      Andrea - keep us posted
