Fall, I love the fall. I love the autumn leaves, smells, weather, and tastes. There is so much good food to be eaten in the fall. Fall is a time to make great soups. I also love spending time with my friends. Put all of those things together and what do you have? A great party theme. I've always wanted to do an Oktoberfest. Why should people who drink have all the fun right? I made three fall inspired soups: Pumpkin (thanks to the fabulous Diana Smith for the recipe), a Tomato salsa soup, and my favorite Cheddar Broccoli soup (you know I love you very much when I am willing to share this soup).
But what Oktoberfest would be complete without Rootbeer? I drove all over town to find as many different varieties of RootBeer I could find. The Australia Beer was interesting to say the least. I'm not sure which one was the favorite of the group. Next year we will have to do take a poll as I think this will need to become an annual event.
Thanks to all who came to the party and for the tasty treats you brought to share as well. Happy Fall!
