Summer is a time of sunbeams and sunflowers. It is a time for evening walks, gardening among fireflies and grilling. Summer means Mai Tais, mosquitoes and outdoor concerts. Summer has come to an official end, even if our weather or white socks with sandals wardrobe doesn’t reflect it, so allow me to usher in fall and all the glorious dishes, drinks and doings that come with cooler weather.
My favorite fall fall dish is roasted pork. Roasted pork is one of those, leave the oven on all day while you binge watch Harry Potter-kind of meals. Roast pork melts in the mouth and can be eaten by the handful, tossed into pasta, stirred in barbecue sauce for a sloppy sandwich that harkens back to days of summer or simply draped across a salad to turn greens into greatness. Another favorite fall dish is pie. There are the apple pies and berry pies made from preserved summer harvests and there are the festive pies of thanksgiving. Can you think of anything that says “Home” more than pie? Me either. Finally, fall brings favorite drinks. Fall ushers in the holidays which mean gatherings of people we love over warm cocktails and things that bubble. Fall is sounding pretty delectable right? Right. Let’s shake off those end-of-summer blues and look forward to all the bright and beautiful treats fall has to offer!
