Hello, October.

Welcome back. We’ve missed you!

What is it about October that brings clarity?

It’s not just those clear, crisp fall nights that bring with them the familiar nip of a change in season. October seems also to bring a clarity of mind, and as the wind sweeps the year’s leaves from the trees, so too do we shake off the excess and prepare for what’s ahead.

Hello, October. It’s good to see you.

October is the fallen leaf,
but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen.
It is the distant hills once more in sight,
and the enduring constellations above them once again.

October Recipes

By the time October comes around, the garden is pretty much done and we are drawn inside. The freezer and pantry are full of this year’s garden bounty, and the fridge is stocked with a fresh batch of kraut.

October is usually about the time that the craving to bake kicks in. There is something just extra cozy about having a batch of cookies (or a pot roast) in the oven when it’s crispy-cool and blustery outside.

Don’t miss this post on roasting almonds. Use them as an added crunch on your morning oatmeal or enjoy a handful before bed to help you sleep.

Here are a few favorite October recipes from our Pinterest
