I know it is technically still summer but I am in full Fall mode already.
I am snuggled in a soft throw because we still have the windows open and the rooms are chilly in the morning. During the sunny days we still need a fan on to move the hot air.
The biggest indicator for me that we are in for a change of seasons is that I want to cook. I want to have thing premade in my freezer to take out at a moments notice. I want to stock up for the rough winter ahead like a squirrel…..except where I live winters, though rainy are not that tough and the grocery stores are minutes away.
Yesterday, on my day off , I made 2 trays of my famous meatballs. That is 70 large meatballs. Click here to see how to make some for yourself.
Then I made 2 meat loaves that went directly into the freezer.
Since I was in Fall mode I also made a giant pot of stew. This simmered away all afternoon and I thought we would be up until midnight trying to get it cooled down enough to put in the fridge overnight.
Next nesting binge will likely include pumpkins and a good amount and sugar…..the possibilities are endless.
Do you get the urge to cook in the fall? To bring out warm, cozy blankets and things that smell of pumpkin spices.
