Well Hello There

Hello my friends (is anyone still out there?).  Thank goodness I'm typing this instead of talking.  Why do we pay to have holes drilled in our teeth? Can you tell I was at the dentist this afternoon?!.  My mouth is still numb and it's kind of hilarious.

The past month has taken me to three states, seven airports and been filled with the warm embraces of family and friends.  I had my first Pumpkin Slice Latte of the season (sigh--so delish).  To be honest my stove hadn't seen the light of day until yesterday but I'm home now and ready to start cooking.
Pumpkin Spice Latte time!
Why can I not figure out where to focus my eyes when taking a pic with my phone?
I think there has been an element of "Ok Autumn, let's get this show on the road. I'm ready to bake pumpkin bread and stews and light my cinnamon candles" in my thinking.  But I can feel a change in the air, albeit it ever so slight.

Autumn is just around the corner and I'm eagerly anticipating it in all its glory (well, as much glory as an even clime like Southern California can muster).

In the meantime, here's some good Oregon garden goodness to whet our appetites:

Lovely dewy leaves and fragrant blooms.

Last call for hydrangeas.  Need I say more?

Hi there 'lil cucumbers!

Harvesting grapes that taste like candy.
Yes, it was fairly early in the morning, hence my half-mast eyes.
Caffeine infusion needed pronto!

Yes, one can enjoy cherry tomatoes for breakfast.

Au Revoir. I've got some recipe loveliness brewing in my mind and recipe notebook.  Until then...much love.
