First Soup of the Autumn  
Even if it was in the seventies today, I made pumpkin soup. Was yummy and am full. Also made Parker House rolls. They weren't bad, but I wasn't entirely happy with them. Will try again and see if I can do better.

In TV news, we're a week behind due to being away and counting. Nin's working the last two nights, so all we've seen so far is last week's Grey's and Private Practice. We'll be watching a lot of TV this weekend!

I took your advice and posted my Maude story to 7men1destiny. Pretty sure there will be no interest, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

I really have a yen to read some good Methos fic. It's sad there's really not much being written these days. But it is a dead fandom, so I suppose it's to be expected. Why can't there be a new show I can get into like my fandoms of yore? I've about given up on that ever happening. But I suppose it might be possible. Maybe?

Pumpkin soup sounds like a good idea... Need to try:).

And... They say, impudence is the second happiness, so...:) Can't promise my stories are good, but they are all about Methos:) (http://www.fanfiction.net/~blackrook, feel free to ignore that part of the comment:)).

Pumpkin soup is very good!

We finally made it today, so I just came to thank you for the idea:). Life is much better when you have a pan of pumpkin soup!

I've never had it before, but the pumpkin soup sounds yummy. I've had butternut squash soup at a lovely restaurant here. Might they be something similar?

I would assume they'd be similar, but I don't like squash, so have never had the soup.

I hate squash, but I had butternut squash soup at my brother's wedding, and it was SO good. I've never had pumpkin soup, but if it tastes anything like pumpkin pie, then I would probably like it. :)
My mom just sent me a recipe for cheesy broccoli potato soup, and it called for swiss cheese, which I thought was strange. What kind of cheese would you use?

I've always seen it made with cheddar, so Swiss could be an interesting twist.

I'm not participating this year. After the first one, I realized I am not a challenge/deadline kind of writer, and my life is so messed up right now, I don't want to commit to something I may not be able to finish.
