Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A Soup Class

Mid March a friend and I headed north to the town of Louisburg to the Cider Mill. But the Louisburg Cider Mill is not just for cider.
It hosted a soup class with Instructor Lois Hart. It was fun as we learned some new technics, got some great kitchen tips and . . .

Got to taste three great soups.
Sweet potato and apple will definitely be on my menu this fall.
The corn and pepper chowder was spicy but not too. And I love any kind of corn chowder.
And the berry soup with Louisburg blackberries (frozen from last year's supply). A cold sweet soup that was delicious.

It was a fun outing and a nice day for a drive.

It's Wednesday which means that it's Outdoor Wednesday with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. Join her to see what else is outdoors this Wednesday!

How fun this must have been, Martha. All three soups look and sound delicious. I think I have had something similar to the sweet potato and apple soup and it was out of this world.

Glad you had a delightful day! :-)

What fun! The soups all look wonderful. We're big soup eaters in our home, and DH probably would have enjoyed that too.

I hope you'll drop by AtticMag to see the butterflies I found. #8 on Outdoor Wednesday.

I didn't know they did that! I'll have to look it up and see what other classes they have.

This looks like a blast! Learning something new is always good - especially if it has to do with food!

It sounds like a perfect outing, Martha. I'm sure it was made more fun by the company of a like-minded friend.
