At A Glance, September

What I find notable for the month.*

Homemade Roasted Cauliflower Soup, Harrowstyle


2 cauliflower heads chopped into small florets.
Grapeseed or other neutral oil
Salt and pepper


One white onion diced.
One rib of celery diced.
2 carrots grated or diced.
3 cloves of garlic minced.
3 quarts of chicken (or vegetable broth if you are vegan.)
1/2 teaspoon of salt. (If your broth is heavily salted, you can leave this out. )
1/2 teaspoon pepper.
One teaspoon of fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme.
1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
1/2 teaspoon of cumin.
1/4 teaspoon coriander.
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (sub 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast for vegan.)




Pre- heat oven to 400°. 


Mix 2 cauliflower with grape seed, avocado or any neutral oil of your choice. Add, salt and pepper to taste. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 40 minutes or until cauliflower is well brown with crispy smaller bits.


While cauliflower is roasting. Add some oil to bottom of soup pot, add onion, celery, carrots and garlic until translucent.  Add 2 quarts of broth (reserve extra quart for thinning if need be.) spices and nutritional yeast or parmesan.


When cauliflower is done (set aside a few florets out for garnish later) add them to the pot and use an immersion blender to blend well. Leave on low heat until you are ready to serve.


Serve with set aside roasted cauliflower florets, almond slices. I also caramelized some red onion with tomatoes for garnish as well. But, that’s because I had leftovers in the refrigerator from another meal. 




(This recipe is a hybrid of the cheekychickpea.com and smittenkitchen.com cauliflower soup recipes.)
Tory Burch Basket Weave Tall Boots. Yeah, so not great for a snowy or super cold climate, but a wonderful traditional boot or boot for a warmer climate where you want to feel included with cold weather fashion.
Ted Lasso Season 2. This AppleTV+ show has heart, it’s well written and makes me laugh.
The “Just Enough Family,” Podcast. If you enjoy stories of rich people like “Succession,” “Billions,”and The Great Gatsby, you’ll enjoy this podcast of fashion designer, Liz Lange’s nouvelle rich family and how they lived. Liz has no shame sharing the details of their opulent lifestyle. I appreciate her openness.

*I have been asked by readers of Harrowstyle for links to the items I post. In the past, I have resisted putting affiliate links in my posts as I want you to enjoy my vision as opposed to something I am selling. I am experimenting with adding them to see if it helps you quickly locate something you would like to buy in my post. More as a convenience to you, than me pushing product. If you do purchase that item, I will get a commission, at no additional cost to you. Let me know what you think. -KG.

Straw bags are a big summer trend. This one above, by M. Gemi, is handsome and well priced.
HALSTON, The Netflix Biopic. The rise and fall of the mononymous designer. Watch it for the clothing, the set design, the locations and much more.
Bucket hats are another huge trend for the summer.

Estel Eyelash Dye. Disclaimer! This is not for everyone, but, if you are deft at dangerous beauty treatments at home, you can dye your own eyelashes. The writing on the tube and bottle are in a language I do not recognize, but the package does come with English instructions. I repeat, this is not for everyone and could be very dangerous. That said, this is the best eyelash dye I have ever used.
