The last few days have especially felt like a foreshadowing wave of falls arrival. Not only in the outdoor changes, but in my own activities as well. Homemade pumpkin muffins, picking apples, slower cooker soups, and early sunsets: Need I say more? I’ll keep that rhetorical As much as I’ll miss the long and carefree days of summer, as well as the super sweet and colorful bounty that comes with it, bring on Fall! This weekend definitely showed me what I’m in for.
I also got around to doing one of my favorite events of the fall season….
Picking sweet and juicy apples. My neighbor has a hugeeeeeeee apple tree and kindly offered as many apples as I want. As an apple enthusiast, how could I decline?
I used Susan’s method for making the applesauce, but it really couldn’t get any easier than simmering apples till soft and mushy and adding lotssssss of cinnamon
Meanwhile, I’ve gotten around to using my first winter squash in a beautiful and delicious fall- type meal:
Dusting off the slow cooker….
Hello, “super yummy- I just through everything in a pot and it tastes like I actually worked hard, kind of meal”.
Fresh mint sun tea, toasted seed bread, and a comforting and hearty soup made a divine family meal.
Fall, I welcome you with open arms and can’t wait to relish what you have to offer. The transition from fall to summer is indeed bittersweet, especially to us foodies, but necessary.
Bring on Fall!
Who’s with me: Is everyone else ready for falls incoming as well or are you still loving on summer?
*I apologize, once again, for my sporadic posts. School has been beyond crazy recently and I knew what I didn’t quiet know what I was in for. The free time that I do have is spent doing school work and somewhere in there I try to find time to blog as it’s what I love. Please continue to bare with me through this stressful school time and know that I can’t always post as much I want to.
