Fall Weather

 This is one of the things I love most about Fall.  Open doors and windows!  It's wonderful to cook with the doors wide open. We haven't had much Fall weather here but we got two days of it over the weekend and I enjoyed every second of it. Click for a closer look at the bronze bat hanging above my door.

 I made my friend a huge platter of eggplant parmesan with the last of the seasons eggplants.

 And I made her kids a Fall treat basket with apples and homemade caramel sauce.

As The Blog Tech and I travel from festival to festival, we pick up jars of local apple butter.  This is the land of apple butter so we find it everywhere.  Yesterday I baked bread and he took it along with jars of apple butter to feed it to the kids at the local community center.  It was their first day there for this term.  None of them had ever had apple butter before and were very reluctant to try it.  But, they trust The Blog Tech so they dug in.  Now they have a new favorite snack...they loved it!  I see a lot of bread baking in my future.
