The Fresh and Green Table

I've been reading this cookbook lately
and I am loving it!  It is my favorite cookbook I've read in a while.  Often, I find myself reading cookbooks that I really enjoy, but I never end up actually making something from them.  This book inspired me to action right away.  I wouldn't call the recipes particularly fast and easy.  Instead, the author really tries to make vegetable tastes really, really good.  

The first thing I made was the Southwestern-spiced Butternut Squash and Apple Soup.  I made it for when my mom is visiting next week so I won't have to cook too much while she is here, so it is in the freezer right now.  However, Violet and I ate a sample bowl before packing it away, and we both loved it!  In fact, once we finished the first bowl, I filled it up again just for Violet.  She just kept coming back for more!

Last night, I made the Savoy Cabbage, Apple, Onion and Gruyere Rustic Tart.   It took some time to make (so Vi was in bed by the time it was ready to eat, so she didn't get to try it) but Glenn and I both loved it!  
There were enough leftovers for lunch today!  Lucky us!
