Fall is my favorite time of year!
Cool crisp nights, warm sunny days colored by the changing of the leaves which are seriously the best reasons you need to visit Colorado during Fall. Yes, you will have the occasional snowstorm that whitens the mountains and the planes but it only sticks to the high mountain peaks in preparation for the Winter season! In addition to the beauty, amazing smells come along with it. Let’s see there are the apples, ginger, pumpkins, ginger, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, ginger (I don’t think I’ve said that one yet) and so much more that warms the inside while you play outside. Oh and then there is ginger! Whew……. I almost forgot that one!
Smells of the Season
What’s your favorite smell of Fall? I have soooooo many it is hard to choose but I will say that as a whole it is everything spicy. Don’t get me wrong I love the smell of the falling leaves (yes they have a smell!) and the rawness of the bountiful harvest that comes from the garden my husband labors in all summer. Harvest around our property consists of pumpkins, walnuts, zucchini, apples, pears, honey and so much more. Don’t forget the spice when it comes to these amazing foods. They are key to what I, and others, claim to be the best smells of the Fall season. I add in plenty of spice when it comes to mixing it up in my kitchen to my soaprie with flavors of ginger, cinnamon, allspice, cardamom, nutmeg, and clove.
Fall Cooking In My Kitchen
What’s your favorite dish of Fall? Ok, so I don’t think I could actually narrow it down to just one dish so I have linked a couple of my favorite dishes to this part so you can try out one or all! First, let’s go savory with Butternut Squash Soup. Oooooooh yeah, my all-time favorite Fall soup. *slurp* I get hungry just talking about it. It’s rich and creamy and a perfect warm up to that crisp Fall day or on the day snow has been falling, chilling down the these beautiful Rocky Mountains.
Now, how about those sweet and spicy additions to our Fall menu? My husbands’ favorite thing, regardless of the time of year, is Apple Pie. Mine? Soft and delectable Ginger Spice cookies. My boys? Pumpkin Bread. As you can see the debate is a good one in our house when it comes times to make that Fall dessert! We usually end up drawing from a hat the first time around. Next is Rock/Paper/Scissors decides the second (with a vote for Apple Pie always) and the third just has to suck it up until the time comes around once again to bake that next scrumptious, spicy Fall yummy. Even though there is fierce competition for their choice of what to make, there isn’t any complaint when any are made that’s for sure!
