This made 18 quarts of curry. I don't expect anyone to replicate this recipe but I am posting it because I will make it again and my blog is my recipe file.
I was very interested to hear how the kids liked this because I felt like I was really pushing boundaries by cooking something like this for them. The Blog tech texted me and said the kids dove on it. None of them had ever eaten curry before but they all ate it and loved it. Only one girl picked the squash out.

|For the first time this year, I made the after school kids broccoli cheese soup. I assume that most kids love this stuff. To my surprise, most of the kids had never had this before and a lot of them were very skeptical about trying something with broccoli in it. They loved it! They were actually shocked by how much they loved it. You can find the recipe by clicking here: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/search?q=broccoli+cheese+soup|
|I also made them their favorite cranberry cornmeal cakes. It took no coaxing whatsoever to get them to eat it.|

2 lbs. ground walnuts
1 cup milk
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 T. butter
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix this in a heavy pot and cook for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Cool before using.
2-1/2 tsp. rapid rise yeast
1-1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup softened butter
2 eggs well beaten
4-1/2 to 5 cups flour
Pour milk, eggs, yeast, butter and sugar in your mixer bowl. Gradually add the flour and salt and knead it until you have a smooth dough. This dough is sticky and does not rise much. Place it in a buttered bowl, cover it and let it rise for about 1 hour.
These rolls are huge so you can really cut them in half if you are giving them away.

|I made this for my family the other day and they really enjoyed it. This is a very hearty soup and is a meal in itself.|
|Saute' several stalks of diced celery and 1 bulb of thinly sliced fennel in a couple tablespoons of olive oil.|
|Cube 10 yellow potatoes and add them to the pot and bring it to a boil then turn it down to simmer for about 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender.|

I've lived here for almost 30 years and I have never seen the leaves stay on the trees this long into Fall.
