A winter's afternoon walk with Friday my springer, the sudden cry of a pheasant he disturbs and the caw of crows - it is the change in the sounds of the season that I look forward to. Today something special down here in the South East: an Indian summer, quite indescribably beautiful, to be supped and listened to with a quiet, baited breath because just underneath you can hear Autumn whispering her enticements.

Fine claret (very rarely for financial reasons), malt whisky (actually is there any other sort?), vintage port, rich stews, dark nights (at least if I am somewhere I can see the stars), flute lessons restarting.

I've already had my first special hot chocolate here http://www.scooterworks-uk.com/ which is dangerously close (i.e. about 10 m) to here http://www.topwind.com/

A warm kitchen now that the man has serviced the Aga. Bread baking for the same reason. Ditto stews. And evenings spent reading a good book or, if there's something interesting on the radio, some tapestry or cross stitch.

Simple, easy suppers with friends in each others houses and then practising complicated Scottish reels!
Great fun.

Supper and a glass of wine by an open fire.Warm cozy scarves and mitts.

It's not quite cool enough in NY yet for these autumnal delights.....but I never need an excuse to eat cauliflower cheese, which is one of my favorite foods. Enjoy!

Getting my slow cooker out again. Making a pan of root vegetable soup which will last several days improving in flavour as the days pass. Donning my autumn leaf design wellies and a woollen shawl to wander down the fields picking sloes....making sloe gin....and drinking it.
My mother always sprinkled breadcrumbs on top of cauliflower cheese then browned it under the grill. It reminds me of high tea on Monday evenings as a child. It was often on the menu as she had spent all day washing.

Getting my slow cooker out again. Making enough root vegetable soup to last a few days, its flavour improving with each passing day. Donning my autumn leaf design wellies and a woollen shawl to wander down the fields to pick sloes....making sloe gin....and drinking it.
Cauliflower cheese brings back memories of Monday night high tea. As my mother spent the whole day washing [by hand!] we only had a snack lunch. She sprinkled the top with breadcrumbs then grilled it until bubbling....simply delicious.

That sounds lovely, particularly snuggling up in front of log fires with some hot chocolate. It's not quite autumn here, but I'm looking forward to roasted butternut squash, starting my first colorwork knitting pattern, cold afternoons at the library, and making rum balls with my sister.

Fall leaves, hot cocoa and whipped cream, beef stew and corn bread, hearty soups and winter storms at the beach.

I wish we had a fireplace :( I look forward to seeing images of yours!!

Happy autumn!!
