    so I went into the kitchen and made up one of those easy pumpkin spice bundt cakes. The whole house smells good and spicy,, added some walnuts and a little glaze and now I'm having coffee! :eusa_angel:

    That's what I love about the cool/cold months- food! Meaty, beaty, big and bouncy food.

    So what's next on the menu, WT?

    On Friday night I thought I'd get a jump on the weekend cooking, so I stuck a roast in one of those disposable pans, and let it cook during the night.

    Of course I got up after a couple of hours and had a taste, it was doing great...then I covered it back up and went back to bed.

    Well I poked a tiny hole in the bottom of the pan, so my entire oven is covered with au jous. I didn't realize how bad it was (just thought it was a sort of dry roast) until I went to bake biscuits tonight for dinner. The entire house is filled with smoke. Now I have to clean the damn oven.

    And my house smells like burnt beef drippings.

    I think I'll make turkey chili, cornbread, and pumpkin cream cheese muffins, since we actually had a frost warning last night... :doubt:

    S'ok, tho. Fall is my favorite time of year.

    However it's still August. Last night we were below 45F. Tonight again. Unless something changes, this winter is looking bad. Leaves here are turning yellow over 6 weeks early.
