Whatta Sky! ~ Wild Mushroom & Leek Soup ~ Pumpkin Cheesecake

Good 40ยบ morning. Pressure is up to 29.0 and pollen count is 2.60 out of 12. NATURALLY there is a 'chance' for rain on Monday! This is still unusual weather for this time of year. We've even had snow on Halloween.... but so warm this year.

Earth is about to pass through a stream of debris from Halley's comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Saturday morning, Oct. 22nd, with more than 15 meteors per hour. Earth isn't the only world in the debris stream; NASA researchers will also be watching for meteoroid strikes on the Moon.

Gots the gin and tonic.... come on lemon!

And dinner was soup. Harry and David's Wild Mushroom and Leek basic soup... but I had some dried porcini mushrooms that I reconstituted in beef broth... and added those..


And I added in some couscous and wild and brown rices...

Also had to add more broth to the soup... and the rest of the peas from the Udon Noodle dinner... This soup was AWESOME! Perfect.

I even put a cozy fire in the wood stove. Come on winter!!!!
All I know. Possibly a Costco day today. Happy Friday. Ciao
