There may not be as much chill in the air as I’d like, but it has begun to cool. Monday promises a 19C day and a 13C night (that’s 66 and 55 degrees American respectively). It’s currently 26C with a “feels like” (formerly the humidex) of 34 (93F). At least there’s a breeze.
But I’m not letting the weather get me down. Autumn will arrive, and with it all of the sights, sounds and smells I love so much. It’s my favourite season, hands down. And I revel in it every year.
Since joining Pinterest, celebrating the coming season has taken on a whole new dimension. There’s decor inspiration, comfort food and pumpkin recipes galore! If you can ignore all of the Christmas stuff also being pinned, it’s very inspiring.
I’ve put together a visual menu of items that have been whetting my Autumn appetite lately. Hope you enjoy.

These recipes look interesting, especially the Caramelized Onion and Bacon Tart. Down here we are entering spring but most of these ingredients are still available.
