🐻

What a week! My heart goes out for our fellow Californians who have suffered great losses this week. It’s nearly impossible to live in this beautiful state and not be directly or indirectly affected by wildfires. I can only hope that creative solutions are in progress and the future of our precious state is a healthy one. For anyone brought to the central coast because they have been displaced by fires, your soup is on me this week.

In complete contrast to the images on the news, the central coast has one of it’s more spectacular weekends. The ocean has been crystal clear, glassy and full of life and despite the smokey skies, our sunsets have been one for the books. Be safe out there everyone!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in cambria

1. Kitcharie (mung beans and California wild rice)

2. Creamy Turmeric potato

Lost

So as I’m writing this, my husband and I are lost somewhere near Carmel in the Santa Lucia mountian range…ha! We took a neat looking dirt road off pch and well, it looks like it will be an adventure getting home! We of course have navigation technology but what’s the fun in THAT?!

Happy Halloween! 🎃

A spookiest of Halloweens to you all!! I decided not to take Costco’s suggestion of buying the 10 lb bag of candy in late September to “plan ahead ” for trick or treaters this year and let me tell you, I feel much better this October!

It has been one of the loveliest Octobers I have ever experienced here on the coast and it sounds like rain is fast approaching! Hooray!

Fun in the sun

It was a surf and boogie board kind of weekend again on the coast! The ocean was so warm for around here and I saw whales breaching out past the lineup. Fall is just spectacular around here!

I’m looking forward to preparing some Halloween themed soups this week and hopefully things will start getting spooky towards the end of the week!

Off season

Fall has arrived, central coast style! Its arguably the most beautiful time of year here and the absolute best for sunsets. I spent the weekend at the San simeon cove with friends and dog friends and witnessed some of the most gorgeous sunsets to date! I also had an encounter with a pipe fish (later identified by biologist and over qualified soup booth assistant, Brian.) I put a picture of a (not THE) pipefish at the end of this post.

Speeeeeeaking of our dear soup booth assistant, Brian, he’s leaving Wednesday for a 3 week trip to Madagascar! There he will be exploring the island and photographing Lemurs! Prepare for nothing but lemur photos on this blog in 4 weeks! Ha! I’ll have Nate and Janeane filling in while he’s gone, both of whom have gone through the rigorous training for the position 😉💜

The spiders were spot on!

Sure enough guys! Those tarantulas had on point spidie senses for rain prediction! How lovely was that bit of moisture!? For a mountian biker, there’s nothing better than a tacky trail (and as a mountian biker who is always in the back, it’s nice to have the dust down!)

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Has anyone checked out the scarecrow festival in Cambria? Our Cambria farmers market has a scarecrow this year. His name is “frakencarrot” and he was created by soup booth assistant, Brian! Go check him out!
