Autumn soup and salad with challah and honey cake – September 16, 2012

On Sunday we celebrated a combination John birthday party and Rosh Hashanah. Jonathan and the boys had stayed over night and we got up early so we could make the bread. I had made the soup on Saturday. The autumn soup consists of equal amounts of apples, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, rutabagas, and carrots. There are also some onions in it and some butter. The soup simmers in chicken stock and then is pureed. The recipe calls for cream but I used just a little half and half. It is served with chives, a little sour cream and a slice of lemon. So good! I made the challah in a round shape for the new year. We also had apples and honey and a big salad. Sarah brought a honey cake that we served with ice cream. Nathan especially liked the apples and honey!
