my colleague invited me over to take some family photographs as everyone was over and dressed in new clothes for diwali, the indian new year. after some family portraits and letting the kids play in the park, she fed me lots of delicious and spicy indian food, complete with mugus!

here are some photos from the day.

there is a story behind the squirrel. the kids love the feed the squirrels peanuts, all except the scary gray one (scary because he climbed up on one of the kids who didn't toss the peanut fast enough). they loooove the other squirrels though!

this is chicago and winter fast approaches. well, who am i kidding. it never actually warmed up this year. but fall saturdays are recipes in themselves for some really yummy comfort food.

elaine has been holding on to my aunt michelle's butternut squash & apple soup recipe since spring, saving it for a perfect cold saturday that was today. she improvised with the ingredients attempting to make it a little less fattening (isn't that the purpose though? to fatten up for winter to SURVIVE?)

she accompanied the soup with a delicious warm pilaf made of quinoa, mushrooms, and carrots. she just couldn't serve it in a bowl though; she had to throw a bit of snazzz in.

and then we'd both been craving something sweet, so i whipped up a batch of outrageous oatmeal cookies. outrageous = purple & golden raisins, cranberries, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. yummy!
