Autumn is here!

Pumpkin display at Fresh Farms International Market in Niles, IL

Autumn..my favorite season!! I don’t like the heat and humidity of summer so the return to days when the sun is just perfect in fall, warm not hot, makes me happier. Days have cooled down and leaves have changed colors. It’s the time of soups, stews, pies, warm drinks..perfect season! 🙂

The smells in the air..smell of, probably, baked pumpkin or the season’s aromatic spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, bay leaves, ginger, cloves and allspice. My afternoons will be busy baking /cooking new dishes.

I can’t forget to mention that one of my favorites things about autumn is the sound of crunchy leaves underfoot.
