the weather and soup for supper

The weather.  It's what we talk about here in N.B.  But, I must admit it has been worth talking about this summer as we have had a spectacular summer here in the northeast. After a very good winter with little snow and an early spring did we dare hope for a hot, sunny summer with just enough rain to keep things growing and green but not molding like the last two summers?  Well, we got what we hoped for - sunshine, heat and humidity with just enough rain to keep the wells full and the gardens growing.  How perfect is that?  So, today, after a 4 day stretch of sunshine, it's cloudy, breezy, humid, and showery.

 And, that's why I'm making soup for supper, dinner,  evening meal ~ whatever you call it.  What do you call it?  We call it supper if it's light and casual and dinner if it's a full meal deal.  In the old days on the farm dinner was at noon and supper was in the evening, after the cows were milked.  Now, I didn't grow up on a farm, but that's what I've heard.  I'm a city girl living in the country.  So, whatever it's called, soup is on the menu tonight.  Speaking of which I must finish supper preparations.
