Well, it's been awhile.
I could say it's because we haven't been cooking, but that would be a lie. In fact, we made the best seafood stew ever the other night, and didn't even bother to write down ingredients or take photos, or do anything, really, but just enjoy sitting by the fire. And eating.
Which, actually, was pretty great!
The truth is, I've been busy at work, and traveling. These were snapped at the side of the road en route up the Appalachians. When we haven't been traveling, we've been busy with a few things. Namely, freezing leeks and kale from the garden, which we finally unearthed. Cleaning gutters. Painting. The aforementioned seafood chowder — here's an approximation. You know, the usual fall stuff, minus the pumpkins, etc.
In fact, our sum total of fall activities has been planting two red mums. Alas. There are recipes on the way, though. A great on-the-grill cobbler, an Italian beef stew, that sort of thing. Keeping it in the road until next time...
