Cold and Snowing

Hello....we have not even seen Halloween yet...what is this...and it is covering all the beautiful maple trees...i don't remember ever getting snow (this much) so i got the fireplace going and i cooked all day....made a Dill-Onion Bread and some apple crisp and then i did a oven roasted cauliflower,potato, fennel soup....oh,my...sooooooooo good!!
Roasted Cauliflower, Potato, Fennel Soup
I just took a head of cauliflower (separate the florets); "chunked" 1.5 medium onions; chunked about 5 medium peeled potatoes; cut up some fennel (save the fronds for topping the soup)...Tossed this all with some olive oil and sprinkled with kosher in oven at 350 degrees for about 1.5 hours (turn once and watch that it does not burn..i had a nice color on the all)...Place all of these goodies into soup pot and cover with chicken stock...simmer and than I blended until smooth (i use a submersible blender..makes life easy)...Enjoy!!<

This recipe came from my Kitchen Aide Mixer(page 67)...first time i used it for making and kneading bread....will do all my breads in it now..fab!

Apple Crisp is from Barefoot Contessa(click and it will take you to the recipe) her! This evening i will dig into this and add some vanila ice cream...Nice Day!! even if it snowed...

That soup looks so yummy.

I need to try the apple crisp recipe. I've been using her apple and pear crisp for a couple of years and just omitting the pears. I wonder what difference the flour makes. Hummm. Thanks for sharing.
