I pulled out a couple pair of fall pants last weekend and consigned to the basement my capris and madras. Yesterday I put the kid on the school bus and donned one of my countless pieces of brown clothing. A few of the maple trees along my route have turned reddish orange.
Football was on last night, and the incessant blathering of politicians has reached a fever pitch.
It just feels like time for a pork roast.
Martha Stewart’s minions seem to agree. They posted this recipe for Roast Pork Loin with Carrots and Mustard Gravy today in a slideshow of quick Sunday dinners.
It looks simple and luscious at the same time, and a nice change from another hunk of grilled whatever.
I’m equally excited to try the roasted carrots, the mustard gravy, and maybe some Octoberfest brew to wash it all down.
The calendar says it’s still two weeks away, but it’s already fall in my kitchen.
