The Colors of Home
I wasn't expecting much. I had heard rumors of several big storms, and was sure I'd arrive home to bleak trees and lawns piled with dead leaves.
Instead, there was an astonishing array of color: red, yellow, orange, brown and green. The leaves crunched under my feet and the air smelled delightful -- dry and rich, like toast. There were morning walks, evening walks, and pre-Thanksgiving dinner tromps in the Utah foothills. It is, without a doubt, my favorite time of year.
As long as autumn is on the brain, don't you think we better make this pumpkin curry for dinner? Sean and I had it on Halloween and I promise it's so easy and so satisfying.
I'm heading into the kitchen to butcher our last small sugar pie pumpkin now.
