There are signs of fall all around me these days:
Orion in the sky.
Haven't spotted a robin in a couple of weeks.
Goldenrod blooming everywhere.
Mums and pumpkins.
The need to wear shoes once in a while.
Although I try to ignore most of these things (and especially the shoe thing) and just pretend it's still summer (c'mon; play along), there's one thing that happens every year . . . that just makes the change of season inevitable.
I start to crave cold-weather-comfort-foods!
Yep. I know that fall has truly arrived when I want to cook and eat foods I never even consider when the weather is warm. This week, Carole has us talking about just this topic for Ten on Tuesday with Ten Foods We're Looking Forward to Eating Now That It's (almost) Fall:
- Butternut squash
- Grilled cheese
- Sweet potatoes
- Chicken noodle soup
- Pot roast
- Mashed potatoes
How about YOU? What foods do you turn to when the seasons change?
