Plus, the "fall fairy" had already dropped off lots of front door goodies - indian corn, sunflower heads and a few more pumpkins.
When we drove back into town last night we opened the car door to pouring rain. And today it's been raining on and off and cool. Very fallish.
And fall weather makes me want some fall food. So, I went to work and put this soup in the crock pot. It's not originally a crock pot recipe, but I improvised.
