Autumn, like the
spooks that herald its
sneaks in atop the
Its nuances are barely discernible.
We’re wearing shorts
and flip-flops. The grass still
needs cutting, and we’re heating
up the grill for burgers, chicken
and the last of the garden’s harvest.
The signs are all there: The
hours of daylight in the evening
are diminishing, and the
long-awaited tomatoes begin
sharing basket space with an
apple or two. Out come the cinnamon
and nutmeg for those
glorious pies and desserts.
Then the calendar catches up
— even though mild temperatures
can be deceiving. And the
leaves show off their glorious
reds, oranges and yellows.
Can Thanksgiving be far
Apples are the perfect way to
usher in the new season. Sweet,
crunchy and full of nutrients,
they’re great for snacks at the
desk or after school, and they’re
a great addition to salads. And
what’s more comforting that
coming home to the aroma of an
apple pie baking in the oven?
Take a bite of fall — and
savor the flavor.
