Comfort Food

                                                                     Yesterday, the weather turned cooler
                                                                     here so it was a good day to be indoors
                                                                     doing a little cooking and baking etc.
                                                                        A bowl of homemade vegetable beef
                                                                    soup on a cool autumn day tastes so good.

                                                        I tried a new bread recipe to go with it this time
                                                        ~ whole grain Irish Soda Bread. It was very
                                                       good hot out of the oven.

                                                                  For our tea time treat I made a
                                                                 delicious loaf of Orange Pumpkin
                                                                  Bread. I have to say our kitchen
                                                                 smelled so good!

                                                   Candles for our tea time.

                                                      My autumn transferware china
                                                        Our table set for tea in the bay window.

                            I have included the recipe if any of you would
                                     like to make is easy and delicious!

                                     I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for
                                     Tablescape Thursday today.
                                     also, joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

                                                   Thank you for visiting,

I always want to spend more time in the kitchen in fall. Your breads look delicious! A nice stew and soda bread sounds wonderful. As usual you have set a beautiful homey and inviting table.

It comforts me just looking at the food. I am making turkey soup today with stock from our Thanksgiving turkey. Even though we no longer live in Canada we still do Canadian thanksgiving!

Thanks for the recipe, Carolyn. Both breads looks wonderful, as does your soup. I made beef stew recently, and plan to make chicken soup today. One of the things I love about the cooler weather is breaking out the comfort food recipes. Have a great weekend! ~ Nancy
