Did the weather change overnight for you like it did for us here on the West Coast? After last year’s long and dreary winter, I refused to complain an ounce about the heat but I must admit that it did feel great to cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and to wear my trusty leather boots over the weekend! Its always amazing to me how quickly our lush mountains ease into their autumn colours of rust, deep red and golden yellow but their mottled hues look so gorgeous in the September sunshine. Not just for the hills, these colours look just as beautiful in the home…or on the table for that matter!
Now that I’m a working mama (at least part of the time), it’s time to pull out the crock pot and start thinking ahead for some healthy, hearty suppers. I’ve become a big fan of soup but have yet to win my family over. Any tried and true Fall recipes that you’re willing to share? My hubby hinted that I may have gone overboard on the pumpkin last year so I’ll have to ease into it a bit more stealthily this time ’round 🙂
