Open windows

Things I love about this time of year: open windows and cool, crisp morning breezes. red and gold leaves beginning to fall. apples. the smell of burning leaves. winter squashes, especially butternut.

I plan on baking something this evening now that I'm in the fall spirit. Pawpaw nut bread is what I'm thinking. Received a handful of these fruits in my CSA bag and can't wait to give them a try. Perfect task for an early fall evening.

The strawberry patch in my backyard has not gotten the memo that fall is on its way. I have strawberries still appearing. Not that I'm complaining.

I like to think that there aren't any fruits I haven't tried, let alone haven't heard of, but you stumped me with the pawpaws. Let me know how they taste!
