What’s your favorite thing about fall?  The changing leaves?  The crisp mornings?  The everything Pumpkin Spice?  For me, those first two for sure, but definitely not the last.  For me, it’s not Pumpkin Spice season, it is soup season.  And even though the weather here has been gloriously sunny and dry (not at all like a normal Pacific NW fall), still the leaves have been changing and the mornings have been delightfully crisp.  Winter is coming… soooo we kicked off Soup Season with this new favorite: Homemade Hot and Sour Soup!

Hi!  Well, we survived travelling cross country with a 2 year old and a (now) 8 week old!  It solidified the fact that somehow we won the kiddo lottery as both handled two loonngg travel days incredibly. We definitely have future little jetsetters in the making!  It was such a lovely trip to Virginia celebrating my youngest brother-in-law’s wedding and finally getting to meet and stay with another brother-in-law and sister-in-law I hadn’t met yet.  But man, it’s always good to be home.  Except for the fact that we came home to an empty fridge and sooo much unpacking, un-winding, and time zone adjusting to do.  Which meant for dinner I needed easy and comforting since I’d been up at 4 am multiple days with a 2 year old who was still operating on East coast time.  Welcome this Enchilada Skillet Pasta!
