I did it! I survived another summer. Autumn officially started last Friday. Now we just need a few autumn like days, because this week is more like summer with highs that are supposed to be in the upper 80's. I am hoping that by the end of October we will be feeling the real fall weather.
I don't know why I love autumn so much, maybe it's because the weather gets cooler, or maybe it's because the decorations for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving are just so awesome. Maybe it's because my birthday is in October and even though I have reached the age where I would be perfectly happy not to get any older, I still like the presents.
This year I want something special. A Le Creuset cast iron enameled pot. This is not your average pot. It is a huge pot, at 13 1/4 quarts, it should be big enough even for my family. With autumn here and winter on its way I am looking forward to making soups and stews for the fam.
Another plus for autumn, it is a down hill slope to the holidays and I can't wait to break out the Christmas music. Get ready every one, it will be another country music Christmas at our house. Can you hear the groans? Can you?
