Hello friends! We’re nearing the end of September and that means that a new month’s seasonal eating list needs to come out.
I know that the first official day of autumn falls in September, but it’s October when I truly start craving all things Autumn. Pumpkins in everything, apples in all my pastries, cider and stews. Food really is one of my favourite things about the whole season.
That and snuggly clothing. I just bought a new jumper 3 sizes bigger than I usually buy just for maximum snuggliness.
