Day 266: Autumn Equinox

on September 22, 2012

So yesterday wasn’t just my birthday, it was also the official end of Summer.

As of today it’s is now technically Autumn.

The leaves will start to turn and tumble.

The spiky conker shell will fall and spill their shiny cargo.

The acorns spill from their elf cup holders.
I love Autumn. It’ s my favourite season. You get to wear fluffy jumpers, snuggle on the sofa under a big blanket. When the rain falls you can make a big pan of soup or chilli to keep the chills at bay.

The scents of cinnamon start to come through in cooking and baking. Apple pies and crumbles, pumpkin lattes, it all starts here at the end of September.

My slow cooker will soon be a permanent fixture on my kitchen work surface. I have even bought a new timer for the plug so I can put everything in the cooker in a morning before I head out of the door and it will cook to perfection. Granted chillies and stews it is often a case of more is more, whereas with chicken you can cook it for too long, especially with the breast as there is no extra fat or bone in there.

As ever in my brain I’m going into Autumn/Winter with the same dream I start it will each year, I will emerge from the big jumpers, smaller and more stylish. A bit like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon.
