Friends, this is our first fall living in central Oregon. I must say, it’s different than southern Oregon. The colors just are not there. I truly miss my walks up to Manor Hill, the vision of bright reds and golds, the spectacular maples, the heart-stopping dogwoods. (Want to press leaves for your Thanksgiving table?)

It’s good to “miss” certain things about home though, because Medford will always be home to me.

But it’s important to not miss out on today. Every day has beauty that we need to look for, so we don’t miss out on the sweetness of stolen, here-and-there moments.

I take a lot of early morning or late-afternoon walks, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends. My Dad and his wife, Ginny (who is Grandma to our kids!) are here visting, we we have a nice long walk planned for today- rain or shine! :)

This soup recipe today is an “any-season” soup. And we always keep white beans stocked in the pantry, sausage in the freezer, and cabbage keeps a long time in the fridge.

My recipe today was a HIT in my home last week. All the men loved it. Since our daughter is away at college, I’m making manly recipes, hearty, and mixed with a lot of love :)
