I did not have fall as a child. It's a season that was foreign to me until I went away to college. I have to admit, there is something a little enchanting about this time of year. The air changes and the trees really are beautiful. Here are a few more things that make me excited about fall:
- My birthday
Yes, fall food is definitely my favorite, and as I try to hang on to anything that can keep me from wallowing in the fact that summer was roughly 3 weeks long I must think of food! I have more recipes stashed in the fall food category than any other.
Baking is also much more fun in the cooler months. We don't have air conditioning, and when I turn on my oven in the summer it gets HOT! Did I mention my kitchen was 90 degrees when I made those flower cupcakes a couple of weeks ago? Anyway, my oven basically acts as a heater in my house, and that's actually really nice when I want a heater.
I think that if it weren't for food I would probably spend 10 months out of the year yelling at the cloud layer that is perpetually covering this city. Thankfully, I always have something to look forward to (namely, cooking) and think positive about (namely, eating).
Ok, God, I've learned acceptance. Now can you please make it hot again?
