|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?
