I am still here. Sporadic at best… and I guess that is my life now… but here.
Today is a dreary cool fall day in Central Minnesota. The sky is overcast. The air is damp. A slight chilling breeze makes this ideal sweater wear or a light jacket.
It is definitely soup weather.
I guess that makes today a perfect day for the Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser here in
Stars Hollow, Brainerd. One of the many MANY things I love about our community is how we help one another. Today’s fundraiser is a combination of two non profits (I LOVE this!), our local Soup Kitchen teaming up with our Crossing Arts Alliance.
How does that work?
Artists have donated beautiful hand made bowls to the event. Local restaurants have donated the soups and bread. For $20 you get to choose a lovely bowl for yourself, mingle with the locals, and enjoy delicious soup. The $20 goes to the Soup Kitchen…. keeping food in everyone’s tummy is important.
So for today’s Saturday snapshot I wanted to show you pictures of some of the gorgeous bowls that have been donated by our local artists:
Gorgeous right? I can’t wait. I am off to get ready now. I am going with my cousin and a few friends to taste the soup and get out of the house for a bit.
Tonight I will be making soup I just have not decided what kind to make yet. Perhaps I will be inspired today…. of course, you can always give me ideas in the comments below as well… or perhaps Weekend Cooking has something delicious in mind….
Have a lovely Saturday!
