Autumn, a season to enjoy, and at the same time, a little rest with the intent to get ready for the hard winter months ahead! How do you see Autumn!
The colors of Autumn are so warm, and that orange before the foliage of the trees falls is fantastic!
Everything is designed with precision and always with beauty in mind! Not only functional but also, beautiful!
The trees need a rest, creation needs a time-out, and the animals need hibernation!
The apple trees in my part of the world always give in abundance! So many kinds of apples, and my favorite is Lobo! I love them and use them in my apple pies, salads, and in my soups if I want a little sweetness in my velouté soups! Adding the apple enriches the flavor and taste! If you haven’t tried this before, you will love it if you do!
Decorating the house in the Autumn, is such a pleasure, because of the many colors of chrysanthemums available! How do you see Autumn?
Decorating the house with the elements’ of Autumn takes you out of the ordinary, and it gives a little spice to an otherwise boring existence! There are so many things we can do to bring joy and a happy feeling to us and the surrounding people! It takes a little effort, but when it’s done, A feeling of euphoria is evident!
Of course, the transition to winter comes naturally, and it gives us the opportunity to look and see what we need to keep toasty warm! To have the kids ready to enjoy the outdoors! Therefore, take advantage of the spectacular Autumn season to get ready, for the fight with the snow and the reality of the Canadian winter!
See Autumn as it really is, a spectacular, Season! With sugar and spice and everything nice=Apple pie!
Have a good, safe winter!
I remember with great pleasure my summers in my husband’s village! I am a city girl, but that village life was amazing! Why, because in the summer the villages in Greece blossom!
All the children with their families come, and it’s a constant celebration!
Food was fresh and there were no worries, none, about eating and dissecting every bite that you were eating!
Everything was delicious! That is where I had the best spaghetti ever! I was eating and could not figure where this amazing flavor was coming from!
First I thought it was the fresh butter they were using, homemade and totally pure! But NO!
I could not rest until I find the why and the how!
It was a combination of ingredients!
OH, my Sweet memories of the best pasta dish!
Finally, I had to stay home and spy on my mother-in-law!
She always made chicken, You know those free-range ones, The little crazy ones, with all the flavor!
They were running around so much, no fat in them, not at all!
She boiled the chicken in water with a big onion and some garlic!
When it was done she would remove the chicken, the onion, and garlic, season it very well and serve it like that!
Here is the secret, she would make her pasta dish in the chicken broth!
Along with the homemade fresh butter and homemade cheese, it was the best pasta ever for me!
I have tried to duplicate the magic but never succeeded, because, It was not just one thing, the broth…
It was the summer, the beach, coming home hungry, the amazing pureness of all the ingredients, and that youthful feeling… The one that makes you feel every emotion, every bite, every moment!
The one that makes you feel you are alive, and gives you a gentle push, and tells you, go and enjoy every bite of life!
