I am back in bonnie Scotland. It is grey, it is dreich, it is generally wet and it is chilly. Yup, Autumn has arrived. Still, I cannot complain after enjoying three weeks of glorious sunshine and heat in Cyprus.
With Autumn in mind I am in soup mode again and I am anticipating my first batch of Spicy Squash & Noodle Soup. So in it's honour I announce the topic for this month's No Croutons Required is NOODLES. I am aware that some of my readers have past through Winter and are moving towards the better weather, so I give you the option of making a soup or a salad.
Post your soup or salad with links to this blog before the end of day on the 20th October 2010. Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include:

and please include a photo of your soup or salad. Remember the dish should be suitable for vegetarians. Dairy is allowed.
Full Details can be found here.
And now congratulations are due to the winner of the September challenge.
A big round of applause for Vanessa over at Sweet Artichoke who made us the beautifully presented Corn & Saffron Capuccino.
"I normally prepare this corn soup with corn and potatoes… and this time, I though of trying to replace the potatoes with urad daal… The result is delicious, the daal gives a creamy texture and a slightly nutty flavour, that we both loved very much."
You know you want to try it!
Last, but not least a big thanks to my wonderful friend and co-host Lisa for another brilliant round-up.
