And the Livin’ is Easy (Curried Summer Squash Soup Recipe)

curried summer squash soup

This summer has been too much fun. What I mean by that is that we’ve been managing to squeeze so much fun into our very limited non-working hours that it’s making these warm, carefree days fly by much too quickly. We’ve had family visits, tasted one-of-a-kind beers at the Belgium Comes to Cooperstown beer festival, floated around in the lake, and ridden our bikes all over. At this point either the fun has to stop or we’re going to need to find a way to slow down time.

I’ve been taking full advantage of the plethora of leafy greens, juicy berries, and every other edible plant I can get my hands on. You might think this would mean you’d be seeing more blog posts detailing all of the fun things I’ve been doing with strawberries and spinach. Unfortunately, you would be wrong in that assumption, as summertime also means much more time spent at work and very limited free time. As much as I’d love to have a little more leisure time at my disposal, my summer schedule does force me to prioritize and to be much more efficient in order to squeeze in everything I want/need to accomplish during my day. And after too many slothful winter days spent curled up under a blanket, being uber-productive for awhile feels pretty good. (more…)
