It’s autumn, pack up your jug of soup

Forty years later, soup still rules.

​Although the first official day of autumn was last Wednesday, it was easy to ignore the so-called change of seasons until the noticeable chill in the weather over the weekend.

We saw men and women at the UnPlaza Art Fair on Sunday in shorts and flip-flops, still pretending it was summer. They seemed to regret their impulsive fashion decision. Local artist and entrepreneur Paula Winchester did a brisk business offering free samples of hot tea from her Twelve Winds Tea Company.

The scrappy UnPlaza Art Fair held a used book sale again this year, and I stumbled upon a culinary classic from the year 1970: Cooking with Soup, published by the Campbell’s Soup Company.
