all things autumnal
Fall is in the air, leaves are turning brilliant colors, then swirling to the ground, gardens are giving up their last produce for the year and the skies are more turbulent. Let's take another look at Autumn in Michigan.
First, look at this stunning photo by jamelah on the Michigan in Pictures photo blog. michpics writes:
This is one of the photos in a great set by Jamelah called ah, autumn. I recommend you view it as a slideshow.I second that!
Next, read Kitchen Chick's post about her garden filled with tomatillas including her special Salsa de Tomate Verde recipe.
It's October, and it's the time of year when I marvel at my garden. The summer flowers are past their peak, the tomatoes are pretty much done, the basil has been harvested, but I'm amazed at how much of my garden continues to grow in spite of the chilly days and colder nights. Most of all, I'm amazed at my tomatillos, which have defied all frost warnings and are continuing to set fruit.She continues:
My favorite dish to make with tomatillos is enchiladas verdes de pollo (green enchiladas with chicken). I use a cooked salsa verde that works well for either enchiladas or chilaquiles, and when the harvest is bountiful I scale it up so I can freeze the excess sauce.Finally, view a series of fall images: a pond reflecting the cloudy sky above by Giancarlo Rinna, a tree in it's fall colors in the Motor City by CH Carroll of Beautiful City blog and Jolli Lodge's photos of a leaf that became impaled and a sunset over Pyramid Point.
Are you in the mood to eat cider and doughnuts, carve a pumpkin, and rake leaves? OK, maybe not so much the raking part.
