You know, I just love Autumn. The colors, the sound of leaves rustling underfoot, the snow wafting from overhead…wait, what, SNOW? Yes, it’s snowing outside my window as I write this. So far, it’s not sticking. But that’s not what this is about – besides, I don’t want to give the white stuff any attention just yet. Anyway, to get back on track, I canned pickled beets yesterday. The scent is like none other – I know that’s a cliche, but I can’t help it. The scent of the cinnamon and cloves fills the house, and I just want to bathe myself in it. Okay, I’d look a little wierd after the beet juice turned me magenta. But I highly suggest pickling beets sometime just for the aroma. Today, I baked apple pies. Again – that scent! I’m stopping now – the apple pies are calling me. Yum!
