Ahh, what a day. This is the sort of day that Saturdays were invented for, I think.
A quick sprucing-up of the room? Check.
A walk down to the final local farmer's market of the year? Check.
Using the ingredients from the farmer's market to make potato leek soup and beer bread? Check.
Taking said soup and bread to my sis-in-law's house for a visit? Check.
Squishing adorable baby niece? Check.
Coming home to sip wine and watch episodes of Julia Child's "The French Chef" with my mum? Check check.
Finding out that my Irish Fairy-Soupmother has three other cookbooks and feeling the overwhelming need to buy them? Check check check.
Lesson learned. Saturdays rule.
