I think Fall is my best season as a cook. Somehow I feel more like cooking, the foods that are available appeal to me, and the dishes that I make taste (in my opinion) so good!
We had guests for lunch on Sunday. Catherine reminded me that the first day of Fall fell just after the weekend and so I was inspired to make sure the table looked very festive:
I ended up with a free subscription to Country Home and found a menu to inspire me. Thus, we had mulled cider to begin with, pork roast with fresh herbs (rosemary, sage, thyme, garlic), a variation of my own chutney, mashed potatoes, spiced roasted butternut squash, and green beans.
Somehow, over the weekend the trees took on their first tinge of yellow. It's amazing how it just happens. Tonight we are off to join Grandpa and Grandma for a kayak picnic and to celebrate James' birthday a few days early. Therefore, I am off to go invent a Strawberry Cake!
