It's that time of year! The time of year when I get Autumn Fever. Yes, you heard it right, Autumn Fever.
Autumn is my favorite time of year and believe me, I'm more than ready for it. We've had record breaking heat here in Colorado and I'm ready for the cool crisp days and activities that Autumn brings.I love picking apples at a local apple farm, which in turn leads to apple pies, Hot apple cider, and Caramel-Chocolate dipped Apples. I planted apple trees in my backyard but it will probably be a few years before I can have an "Apple Picking Party" .
Taking a hayride in the fresh crisp autumn air, and hopefully getting to wear that new sweater I just bought :)
Going Pumpkin Picking, which in turn leads to Pumpkin pies, pumpkin mousse, pumpkin bread and .......
A steaming bowl of pumpkin soup. I love making all different kinds of soup when the weather turns chilly, it makes the house smell so good, and warms the body and the soul.
Curling up with a hot cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or hot cider in front of a warm crackling fire. I suppose it's a bit primal, but I just love sitting next to a crackling fire.
Going on a picnic to enjoy the crisp sunny air and go leaf peeping. If I'm really lucky, I'll get red and gold leaves falling over me like a rain-shower of Autumn gems.
One of my favorite things to do on the first Cold Sunday of Autumn is to roast a turkey (with all the trimmings). It make the house smell so good and takes the chill out of the air. To me Turkey is the ultimate comfort food, but if turkey is not your thing, try a beef, or pork roast.
So go ahead and anticipate your favorite Autumn activities. Plan that first celebration of the season and share these traditions with family and friends (or start some new ones). I know I will, so here's to an awesome Autumn season.
