Hello once again, my friends. Here we are, looking out our windows, longing for the cool weather that we know is on its way. Well, some of us are longing for that and all the fantastic comfort foods it brings with it. As I sit here dreaming of chili and soups and roasts, it’s 80 degrees outside so that is why I’m longing. The thing is, even though mother nature doesn’t seem to be cooperating, we can still be planning for the coming weather and, with it, the coming of fall foods.

Children love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy. What a perfect holiday!
Give your children some precious Halloween memories that they’ll have for life. Trick or Treating isn’t what it used to be.
It’s not as safe to let children walk the streets alone. Send a responsible adult or older teenager with them. Have a pumpkin carving party for your children and their friends a couple nights before Halloween. They’ll enjoy looking at their creations for a few days before the pumpkins need to be thrown out.
