1. Autumn. I’m not a pumpkin spice person, so I don’t care about that. I just want the cooler temperatures, the hoodies and sweaters, hot tea, apple cider, and comfort foods like beef stews and casseroles. I am ready for a change!
2. On that note, I have a big pot of chicken and noodles, one of my all time favorite comfort foods, on the stove. Homemade chicken soup for all the wins!
3. And on a similar note, apple cider. We have a cider mill close to us that makes excellent cider and even better apple cider doughnuts. While I haven’t been there in a while, so I have no doughnuts, many local stores stock their cider. So when I went to the hardware store earlier to get birdseed, I also snagged a jug of fresh, local apple cider that I know for certain is delicious cold as well as hot. And now I’m thirsty. Yay, fall!
