Autumn has me craving nature even more! Changing colours, warm vegetables, scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, wellies, horses, cable knit sweaters, the list goes on! I don’t enjoy the bitter cold, but for at least for a few weeks I’m looking up.

A very big THANK YOU to our hosts, Blake and Richard, who graciously shared their home with us for Britsgiving last night! This power-couple continually amaze me with their talents. Blake is an outstanding cook who, hands-down, makes the most delicious stuffing and general combination of flavours across the table. And speaking of tables… Richard built the table upon which we enjoyed this glorious feast! With all the traditional American fare and a few British goodies to boot this was a meal I will be raving about until next year! To top it off, we spent the remainder of the evening (around the massive hand-crafted table) laughing, telling stories, and creating the memories that make the holidays so very special. Thank you again Blake and Richard! xx
Walking through Brockwell Park this morning on my way to work I couldn’t stop snapping photos of this sudden shift to autumn. The crisp air, the warm sun, and the leaves crunching under my feet, all made me wish I was walking with a mug of hot cider and scouting for pumpkins!
I mailed a birthday card to a friend in the US today (late, as per usual, it might arrive three days after her birthday) and began thinking of all the upcoming autumn birthdays. I counted twelve of my closest friends and relatives in the next two months, twelve (and that’s not including my own)!
Well, Desserts For Breakfast has a penchant for pumpkin which I can whole-heartedly get into. And with all these birthdays on the brink I’m going to have to get creative with my gifting. But I know at least one birthday that pumpkin will be perfect for (see above). I’m just sayin’.
