|It's been a quiet month here.
Changing Seasons Outside My Kitchen Door
|Early morning, first day of Autumn from my kitchen door.
A very cool rainy day after a long warm spell.
|Later, we had more sun, but the leaves are turning.
The weather now is nice, and more sunshine is predicted.
|Autumn evenings are lovely, but it now gets dark rather early for outdoor dining,
and soon it will be dark early and maybe too chilly for outdoor cooking.
On the table: Len's old iPhone. He has now upgraded to the newly-released version.
Cooking and Eating At Home
|The table set for four of us!
We were at home for the entire month of September, and we cooked and ate almost every meal at home. My sister and brother-in-law visited us for a few days. Once during their visit, we got some take-out sandwiches, cider, and donuts to eat as a picnic at the Dexter Cider Mill — otherwise we ate at home. I didn't take pics at the cider mill this year, as it's always the same, but here are last year's photos: Cider and Donuts.
|Homemade tomato and pumpkin soup in the refrigerator.
|Another refrigerator scene: chicken and roast vegetables in my
vintage CorningWare casserole which I received as a wedding present.
|Cauliflower cheese, browned in the toaster oven.
|Local tomatoes are becoming hard to find.
|Len continues to bake many kinds of bread, all wonderful.
What passes for excitement in my neighborhood?
