Although Washington has seen fit to freeze me to my bones this week, it really is a most beautiful place to live. There are few things as invigorating as an Autumn trek along trails in the woods, breath coming in great clouds, admiring sunbursts shining through the trees.
I love how the sun glimmers down through the branches, setting mossy fronds aglow.
I think my favorite bit is after the hike, finding a view-o-licious spot along the coast and watching the sun set over the San Juan Islands.
Such beauties are especially enjoyable when you get to sit down to a dinner of hearty stew with dear folks afterward. On a particularly cold night, my friends Art and Donna invited me over for succulent boeuf bourguignon served with simple boiled potatoes, sweet cornbread and red wine. It was heavenly.
What is your favorite warming food?
