The results of this Thai-style soup are worth all the effort

Right next to taffy apples and pumpkin spice lattes, butternut squash soup is one of my favorite fall foods.

On the plus side, this version combines the classic creamy soup with the warming flavors of Thai cuisine — red curry paste, ginger, lemongrass and fresh lime.

In the red column, this is going to require a certain amount of effort. First, there’s the shopping. I don’t typically have curry paste, lemongrass or even fresh ginger on hand.

Then there’s the prep work. This soup definitely requires a bit of elbow grease — peeling the ginger, smashing the lemongrass. Never mind, cutting the squash itself — an onerous task, to be certain.

Gone are the days of lugging bulky vacuum cleaners around the house and getting tangled up in thick cords. Now, you can opt for sleek cordless vacuums, lightweight upright models, and even robotic vacuum cleaners that do all of the grunt work for you.

I like to have things. Things that are tangible. Some call that collecting. I call it having things. So it was only a matter of time until I got into vinyls—collecting my favorite albums, and picking up video game and film soundtracks. I also love bragging about my things. Finding artful ways to show them off. That’s why I needed a kickass record player, to show off my cool (and, to be fair, also not so cool) records. Finding that player was hard, because while I know a lot about tech, old-school audio is lost on me, and most players on the market seem gimmicky, putting huge emphasis on “all-in-one packages” or “vintage sound,” which really just translates to
