I think that autumn might be my favorite season. I love the cooler air and the way the sun takes on a golden cast as it shines through the trees once they've turned colors. I don't appreciate that fall is really short and quickly gives way to winter, but you can't have everything.
One reason I like the cooler temperatures is that most of my cooking specialties are best suited for cold weather. I can hardly wait to make my first pot of chicken and dumplings for the season.
Tonight we're having two crockpot dishes. In my smaller crockpot I've put two thick pork chops and a brown sugar-and-butter-stuffed apple. The larger crockpot holds a chopped head of cabbage and a ham bone. All I'll need to do when I get home is fix some potatoes. I think I'll roast them with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Oh, and I'd probably better make another vegetable for the hubby. He's already balking at the cabbage, to which I say, "Fine - more for me!"
Any other fall fans out there? What do you like best about autumn?
