Fall has definitely arrived in Seattle this week. Since I blogged last, the leaves on the trees have suddenly turned shades of gold and red. The rain has returned and it's definitely Fall rain: colder, steadier with sharper rain drops. It's getting dark early and tonight the sun should be completely in bed by 7 p.m. The air smells wonderful: crisp with pine undertones, rather than the sweetness of summer air.
The turn of the seasons is always an exciting time. I am still hoping to can one more batch of peach butter this weekend and dehydrate some tomatoes. But, I am also planning for recipes with roasted winter squash and other Fall goodies.
Chili season in the Siem family is scheduled to begin this weekend. Sean will be so excited! What are you doing to welcome Fall?
