We are! The air has definitely taken on a chill with evening temperatures now way below 60… perhaps it’s time to put away the grill and fire up some fabulous fall food. Sweet Paul makes it very easy for us to plan a cozy candlelit dinner filled with all the yummy goodness fall has to offer – earthy mushrooms, peppery kale, tangy apples and juicy pears. Soup to start, followed by a fresh salad and a beautiful roast, and, of course, dessert. While we’re huge fans of a crisp rosé in the summer, this is a meal best paired with a hearty red like a Bordeaux or Barolo. So pull up a chair and join us for a fall feast… As Paul would say, “here’s to chasing the sweet things in life” and eating them, too!

Fallin’ for Fall
How do we love fall? Let us count the ways… It’s not just the cooler days (sweater weather!) and the maples on our drive home turning a fiery orange that puts smiles on our faces. We also love fall colors like persimmon and bittersweet and apricot
Comfy and Cozy
and gourds galore.

Not to mention fall foods like anything made of apples (cider, pie, crumble, and crisp)
Yummy Apple Butter
and pumpkin (bread, lattes, ravioli, gnocchi, and pie – we really do love pie!)
Pumpkin Gnocchi from House of Brinson
And the best way to spend an autumn day – getting lost in Lyman Orchards’ 4-acre corn maze. We’ll need that 2 1/2 mile walk to work off all the pie!
