Fall is upon us now and the other day, it suddenly dawned on me, that last summer — a lot of cooking had been done in my silver kitchen which never made it onto J5MM. Pouring over all my photos I took of my culinary creations made me realize also — what a beautiful, gloriously long summer we had here in Washington. The warm breezes continue to blow, even now in what should be a chilly October. We have our funny days where temps reach 80! But today will be a nice mid 60’s October day according to the weather woman. I’m ready for warm sweaters in the upcoming season and exhilarating early morning hikes where the frost graces the edges of the creek near my home.
