Thanksgiving Trials

Dear E,

I daydreamed about serving grilled cheese and soup for Thanksgiving this year, to serve the opposite of an over-the-top meal but keep the comfort. Of course that's not what we're doing but I am keeping soup on the menu.

I thought that serving soup as a starter would be a pleasant change -- the freezing weather outside may have something to do with this decision. The problem with serving soup at Thanksgiving that soup can be very filling, especially the sort of soups that came to mind at first -- cream of cauliflower, butternut squash, potato-leek. I also didn't want to just serve chicken broth! I happened across a recipe for roasted garlic soup that sounded light enough but with a bit of body to it. I shared the recipe with N and he thought it also sounded good but suggested that I make for us first. Good call!

I made the soup for dinner last Thursday (with a couple of modifications) and I think it fits into that little round box I hoped it would. We will see how it goes next Thursday. See you then!
