This week is M's fall break. How easily we fell out of the waking up early pattern. I feel like my body is not meant to get up before 7am.
We are heading to San Francisco today. We have not been in a couple of months. Saturday we are going to take M to see the play Wicked. We have reservations at OTD, the newest addition to the Slanted Door restaurants that opened up on Fillmore. We are also planning on eating at Flour + Water in the mission. Maybe a visit to Delfina too? Whatever the case I am excited to see my sister and walk on cement.
Lastly, I wanted to tell you all that I made butternut squash soup the other day. I roasted some sweet peppers and added them too. I used an immersion blender to mix it, and added vanilla bean seeds. Our local market sells raw whole ground vanilla beans for only $4.25 a bag! I added a couple of teaspoons and the vanilla crumbles added the most wonderful dimension to the butternut squash.
It was good enough to warrant mentioning to you in case you were thinking about making soup these cold days.
I will report on SF in the next couple of days!
