Before we start, for you who stumble upon this series for the first time: Sandy from Confiture de Vivre and myself started publishing Earthly Delights beginning summer playing around with what we are best at with one common theme we decide on together and two interpretations.
This time we decided to go for a season, we both feel very much attached to and still kind of transport the slow feeling from our last post.
Sandy: Autumn is definitely the time for a hearty soup. Nothing fancy only a nourishing soup that is warming your belly from inside after a long walk through the woods. Chestnuts come right the way. An old fruit, harvested in the dark woods of Haut Languedoc, roasted on an open fire and then put into the soup together with pears and hot spices. Tasty and simple and simply good.
Gudy: I had a long summer this year. Actually we still have unusual mild temperatures and to get the autumn feeling, I went on to a longer walk towards the ‘green lung’ of Barcelona. There is the Collserola mountain (I have just learned it is the largest metropolitan park in the world) surrounding part of the city where you can walk hours and hours. I came back with a nice loot of leaves, cones, rose hips and all you discover during these autumn days in the reddish, green and saffron-colored forest. I had the privilege to watch the sunset with glowing golden tree tops and knew then, I would make shine some finds in exactly that same color.
