It’s a long weekend ahead. The seasons seem to be one month behind this year, the foliage only just started, and we have wonderful, sunny days that are still nice and warm, and one can walk around with a t-shirt. Nevertheless I seem to be obsessed with finding the right winter coat, like this one, or this one, or maybe this one (<——I actually manage to order one yesterday when it was 40% off, now it is sold out!) ? It is not really that I need a coat, and they are better bought in the spring when they go on sale. If the style stays classic, it won’t change much for the coming season besides the colors.
Well, I try to write off this coat interest as ‘preparing for the winter’, just like the squirrels, running around finding food, and try not to give in to it (too much). But one or the other coat might end up in my shopping basket for closer inspection. And it’s also a long shopping weekend with deals ahead.
It is also apple picking time, and recipes for apple cookies seem to abound this year. I have been so busy that I only managed to collect recipes but not really cook much (yet). Nevertheless, apple picking is on the plan this weekend.
A few days ago when I went for a walk I found some porcini, right on the side of the road. It was a surprise because it had be so hot and dry for so long, and mushroom like hot and humid. Nevertheless, it seems like a good idea to go foraging in the woods. And, did I find some great looking porcini ! So many actually that I dehydrate them for those winter risottos.
ok, enjoy the long, relaxing weekend!!
