I love fall. Sweatshirts and jeans. No A/C or furnace. The first pot of chili since last winter. And most of all, I love to be able to turn on my stove without the A/C kicking on. I'm no Rachael Ray but I do love to try. One of my favorite things to make in the fall is a pumpkin roll. It is sort of a like a pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing in the middle. If you haven't tried one of these, you just have to. I use Libby's recipe, which you can find here, http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/detail.aspx?id=32372
And after five months of wearing nothing but flip-flops, I'm actually excited about my sock drawer. I may even treat myself to some new Gold Toes. I know, I'm so lame.
Okay, spill. What is your favorite way to celebrate the arrival of fall?
