As we experienced our first light snowfall of the year this week, I find myself not even remotely prepared to let go of fall. In Alaska, it’s so impossibly brief, particularly for my love of fall food. Fall flavors are my favorite flavors of the year.
Fresh snowfall was on the ground and I had been craving soup when I was inspired to resurrect this old curried chicken and rice soup recipe. It was perfect – seasonal, cozy and so delicious.
We’ve been having a string of grey days with intermittent snowfall and occasional slush. The waters of Cook Inlet turn deep and brooding, a charcoal shade of grey. The skies a paler shade, like the coat of a gray wolf.
