The past two mornings have been so refreshing! It was noticeably cooler with humidity being little to none. It's a reminder that summer is quickly fading and soon autumn will be making her arrival.
I am looking forward to baking and having the windows open with the curtains blowing in the breeze. I do no real baking in summer to keep the house from heating up and making the air conditioner work harder.
This autumn I'd like to expand my soup skills. My family loves my homemade chicken & dumplings and cheesy potato soup, but I'd like to make a hearty stew. Pare that with homemade bread and you have a wonderfully filling meal!
Right now I'm missing homemade treats. Cookies galore - peanut butter, oatmeal/raisin/chocolate chip and the classic chocolate chip cookies. I'm not much of a cake person, but brownies are a delight. We can't forget various muffins, cinnamon rolls, and pancakes for breakfast...
The holiday season is just around the corner which means lots of baking items on sale. I plan to take advantage of these sales to build my stockpile. Also hams and turkeys are usually on sale and are beneficial to add to your freezer stockpile.
I've been really inspired lately by Annabel's blog, The Bluebirds Are Nesting. She writes about building her home and pantry. She shares her beautiful crafts as well as money saving and beauty tips. I'm sure you will love her as much as I do. So pop over and say hi!
So tell me -- are you looking forward to autumn?
