seasonal transition

This week, two people have said to me, Soon it will be October, and it will be cooling down! Hmmm... not likely. Fall may be here, but the summer heat will be hanging on a while longer... and maybe in November, it will be cooling down. I do remember a Swamp Buggy Parade, or two, when it was downright cold, but by then it was almost November. Regardless, I feel like it's time to say goodbye to summer. Usually, I am ready. Perhaps this year, with my job/schedule change, I just didn't have time to think about it. But now I am... thinking about it. Because of my cinnamon broom. So tonight's dinner will be called, Goodbye Sumer, Hello Fall. (Why does dinner have a name? I don't know... a friend pointed out that I think in themes. ex: Lasagna=Italian Cream Cupcakes... and since the lasagna was cooked over a campfire, we also had S'More Cupcakes) The simple summer supper menu? Grilled chicken, corn on the cob, and Nappa salad. Perfection. And for dessert? Warm, spicy carrot cake. Now, if only the leaves would change...

YUM! I love "fall" food. I have been baking cookies and looking up new casserole recipes. I love that comfort food. The saddest thing is, I considered wearing a short-sleeved sweater top today because it was supposed to dip to a high of 91. PATHETIC, I tell you. That's how desperate I am for fall. *sigh*
