Fall season (2019)

October 16, 2019
Fall is here and now we have the cooler weather. 

The nice part of this season, is the leaves are changing  with amazing balance of color, perhaps take your significant other, children and family for a long walk to check this out. If you have the chance look at water streams with the trees on either side its amazing along the water.

On to food, due to cooler weather climate it's nice to keep warm with food that meet the season, every year I suggest a nice beef stew, a variety of clear consomme or puree of creamed soups. The key in soups depending on the type of course, purchase chicken, beef, bones to create a well balanced stock that would eventually turn into a nice soup. In my next post I will add recipe for making and creating stocks for soups to assist you.
