The kids are back in school, the weather has cooled down quite a bit, and football season is here. Yep, it’s fall. I love this time of year. I’m not sure what it is about the fall, but my cozy gene goes into high gear.
This is the time of year when I pull out some snuggly blankets and put them on the sofas for curling up. There is a steady supply of tea, cocoa and biscotti for an evening treat while the family watches a little tv. Football game days have me cooking up a storm in the kitchen while my husband and son watch the game. These are the days that I will cook up some chili, roast or make a lasagna. Anything that takes a while to cook and warms up the home with a good smell is fair game.
Cookies are baked, board games are played and books are read (especially at bedtime). Lounging in pj’s on a Sunday morning with the newspaper and a stack of pancakes are common. My favorite thing to do this time of year is to have a big Sunday meal. There is something about winding up the weekend with a hearty home cooked dinner that gives the family that last moment to relax and enjoy some free time before the busyness of the week begins again.
