Everyone has been talking about Fall, but I have remained silent. Fall is my favorite season, so I am as excited as everyone else, but sadly, Fall, true Fall, comes late here. It was over 100 degrees here last week. Only now do I feel safe welcoming you to Pumpkin Season.
Though most of the leaves are still on the trees, the weather is cool-ish and breezy. And, while there is no frost on the pumpkin, there is a pumpkin on my mantel, so I am very happy.
I am ready for shorter days, and heavier clothes. Warm meals cooked in a hot oven. I even went so far as to cook the roast chicken on the cover of this month's Sunset Magazine.
Bengali Five-spice Chicken. It was yummy. And made the whole house smell exotic. (The twenty dollars in gas it cost me to drive around and find all of the ingredients is a story worthy of it's own post.)
I hope you are all enjoying your Fall.
