October it is! Even when I am way out tropical in south east asia, I am convinced with Autumn. I like to dream and remember- it's such a pretty time of year. I conjure up the falling leaves and crisp walks outside in a cooler clime. Picking up my children from school and going to the great Central Park in New York to run around, play, chase, scooters and more. Wearing Hunter wellies and crunching leaves under our feet, collecting vibrant colours, twigs and acorns to decorate the table tops and window ledges of our apartment. Stopping off for a hot chocolate at Le Pain Quotidien then a quick dash home to get dinner started before the earlier dark approaches. Here is a great idea for dinner, healthy and delicious and sure to keep the warmth of Autumn no matter where in the world- Roasted Butternut and Coconut soup served with crusty french bread. The coconut creme is a tasty mix with the butternut squash and adds a little tropical for our Autumn meals out here. Try it! Recipe from the wonderful 'Green Kitchen Stories' food blog, find it here.
