Fall Day Cooking

I love fall days.

I love the chill in the air first thing.

I love the crunch of the leaves when you are working in the yard.

I really love when it is finally chilly enough to break out my dutch oven to cook carnitas.

Carnitas del Julia

note to self.  remember to turn the oven all the way on before walking away.  otherwise you end up with no mas carnitas

Heat has Broken

We have had super hot heat this week in Kansas. Finally. It feels like a little summer. My tomato plants are turning red. My new dehydrator will come in handy to dry my chili peppers that are ready.

With spring is the wonderment of growth. Fall I am always amazed to watch every decay and break down. It is so beautiful.
