I love fall! I love the colors of the trees, wearing boots and sweaters (but NOT jackets!), pumpkins, fall festivals, autumn food like coffee and cider and soups and pot pies. I love just about everything about fall, except the reminder that winter's on its way. Yesterday, the kids and I carved a pumpkin -- they designed and I executed. They did NOT like digging the seeds out, which I thought they'd love. But they really liked the rest of it. We roasted the seeds in the oven and I've been snacking on them ever since! I roasted a little pie pumpkin the other day and pureed it so I can use it in recipes next week. More on that later!
