OMG Is it already October?!?

Autumn is here!!!!!!!!
Well not technically, and not that you could notice a difference between summer and autumn in Ireland anyway...
But it is here and I am totally down with all the autumn food that's available in an abundance now. Gimme apples and mushrooms and pumpkins (oh how I wish one could get hold of pumpkin puree here) and chestnuts and beet and cabbage.
And let's make soup with it. Because cold, miserable days only require a bowl of hearty goodness to become a winner. 
Soup is so on my autumn bucket list...

Edith's Autumn Bucket List
- Make soup. All the soup. 
  I especially got my eyes on Joy the Baker's Carrot Apple Ginger Soup,
- Accompany the soups with homemade bread rolls. If I can make bread, I should be able to make rolls. Right?
- Purchase real, proper boots. Because refusing to wear boots in winter even tough it is snowing because that would mean winter has won the battle with you, seems a bit childish at the age of 19. These boots from Topshop are gorgeous me thinks!
- Rock the scarves. Any shape, any colour will do. A warm neck is my priority this autumn.

On a completely different note....I missed the Foodie Penpal reveal day. I am sorry, I only have procrastination to blame.

My Second Foodie Penpal Box
Last time was so much fun, I just had to take part again.
The blogger I was assigned to was Anna from Grow Your Own Food, and I tried my best to send her a parcel full of things she and her family would enjoy. I think I succeeded....

In return I received a generous and lovely box from Kris Stone. Thank you Kris!!! You absolutely hit the spot, you ledgebag!

In my box there were....
- Chinese tea. It is delicious, I already had a cuppa :)
- Black Cardamon. Kris let me know that this is an ingredient in Vietnamese Pho, a dish I am dying to try!!
- Harissa Paste. It seems very, very spicy.....me likey!
- Jamie Oliver Stuffing. Ugh. Jamie, marry me already.
- Homemade Egyptian spice mix. I have yet to use this in a dish, but I totally had a teaspoon full of the nuts and spices...without anything else. God, this is good!
- Lavender Sugar. I have never ever heard of this before. I am excited, it looks and smells so nice.

Also, adored the Alice in Wonderland tags, thank you so much Kris!
