Fall Fever

It's nearly October, and since Autumn seems to become more fleeting with each passing year, it is only right to celebrate this colorful season while we can. How do you like to enjoy the crisp air, the comforting flavors of the marketplace, and the visual display of harvest-time hues? Here are a few suggestions for how to make the most of this special time of the year:
  • Make fresh apple juice
  • Buy some non-pasteurized apple cider from a local orchard and let it turn into homemade Apple Jack in your fridge. If you're so inclined, warm the cider and add a little butterscotch schnapps... yum!
  • Make an apple dessert - pie, crumble, cake, whatever your desire. I'll be trying Ani Phyo's American Apple Pie recipe
  • Go on a hunt for the most beautiful fallen leaves, string them together with a thin twine or string and decorate your doorway
  • Set this leafy wallpaper as your computer background
  • Swap in the usual baked potato for a baked sweet potato or yam - you'll enjoy a more autumnal flavor and color while benefitting from more fiber and nutrition
  • Plan a trip to a corn maze. You can find one in your area here
  • Go scarf shopping, or better yet, knit your own! (I'm not crafty enough to make my own, but it would be nice)
