Autumn in my kitchen means … canning jars, freezer bags, and using the oven again.
Autumn in my home brings … swapping out the clothes (sweaters for shorts!), putting out a few fall decorations, and baking.
I bring Autumn indoors by … keeping the windows open when I can and bringing in lots of wood for our woodburner.
A few favorite Autumn activities for my family are … resuming our studies, "snow days" at the beach on those perfect Indian summer days when all the other kids are stuck in school, jumping in huge piles of leaves, sitting by the campfire with no mosquitoes, watching the stars come out, more hiking, and maybe a local football game.
Two favorite Autumn recipes are … hot apple cider and any soup that needs to simmer all day in the crockpot!
This Autumn I would like to … get a good start on Christmas gifts so I can enjoy December a bit more, pick apples with the family, go camping with the family in the UP, and learn how to make a good pie.
