Isn't it amazing that when you set forth to cook all day, suddenly it's three and you realize you haven't eaten a 'real' meal yet? You nibble on this, test that, drink a glass of wine (just to make sure it'll add the right flavor to your pot roast of course) and just feel stuffed with aromas.
This is just that day. Waking to a quiet cup of coffee with a little knitting, followed by a walk around the garden harvesting herbs and then chop chop! I roasted a chicken with rosemary, sage & thyme butter, am marinating even more chicken for my uncles favorite dish and put a pot roast in the slow cooker with tons of fresh herbs, veggies and secret ingredients to pop the flavor. Oh yeah, also, a cooks illustrated banana bread variation that is delicious! I'm eating it right now and it's the most of one thing I've eaten yet today.
Fall always pushes me toward the kitchen... to roast, stew, or bake things, which I meet with pleasure. I'm happy to be here. I'm just in love with the way things are right now. Except for tea-parties that don't involve stuffed animals and imaginary friends (or do they??) but that's a story for a different blog!
Adding to the FALLing in love... an adventure to the county fair. I've already decided that next year I want to submit items and try to win so many ribbons!
