Today on the way home from the post office to mail off a package and to purchase some supplies for a fun Halloween treat that I am making, I was mulling over what I might prepare for supper. I had made a vegetable soup for lunch but had no plans beyond that. When I walked in the door, the most wonderful aroma greeted me. Dick had supper in the oven. He described the day's events. When he was outside today, he heard glass breaking, but he didn't know where the sound came from. A while later he walked out to check the water heater in one of our cabins and discovered a partridge that had flown into the glass window of the cabin's front door. Shattered glass lay strewn on the front porch. Sadly, the bird didn't survive it's ill-fated flight. Not to let perfectly good meat go to waste, Dick got busy.
He baked the partridge in cream of chicken soup along with a whole apple. and a sprinkling of freshly grated pepper and Johnny's Seasoning Salt.
While the partridge finished baking, I went to my garden to pull some carrots. I thought some honey carrots would be a nice side dish.
The recipe calls for whole baby carrots, but my garden ones were so large that I sliced them. What a fun surprise tonight's supper turned out to be. A perfect autumn "from the land" kind of meal.
