    Well I have got to say the nights are drawing in and it's getting at night and the leafs will be falling soon....... Winter will soon be here :):):) in celebration I have put my 1st stew in the slow cooker for tomorrow night....... Knowing my luck it will be a warmer day and sunny tomorrow lol
    Christmas is only around the corner and I've started to put money back for that now and starting to think if we will be on a red or green day on Xmas day lol

    Oh and apple bobbing on Halloween and watching fire works the week after ............" it's the most magical time of the year" lalalala :):):):):):):):)

    The new magazine had warmer recipes in as well! Autumn is a nice time of year and I'm looking forward to the autumn/winter celebrations in my new home :)

    I love autumn. The leaves changing. Lovely warm stews. I seem to eat healthier in cold months than hot. Probably as I prefer veggies to salad.

    I don't really have a favourite season as I love them all but for different reasons!

    I look forward to each one just before but as each comes to and end, I find that I'm ready for it to go and the next one to come in, just for variety!

    I am now looking forward to Autumn and Winter... the slow cooker might see some action before much longer, it's been dormant all over summer. Come autumn/winter though and it tends to be on both days over the weekend!! Quick preparation in the mornings and then leaves us plenty of relaxation time without having to worry about getting dinner :D

    Hmmm, now I want pot roast! Feeling very under the weather today and though I wasn't hungry earlier I'm now startign to crave comfort foods... pot roast would do quite nicely right about now! Will just have to content myself with my jacket spud and beans for lunch instead!

    I had my slow cooker on a couple of weeks ago and it is on again today. I also love soups to come home to in the winter.

    All the lovely autumn veg will be in the shops soon... yummy!

    Eeeeek, my favourite time of the year!!! Christmas, Halloween, Bonfire night, I love it love it love!! :D:D Snuggling up in front of the fire, wrapping up warm to go out. Eeee :) I'm such a kid.

    I am loving lots of the autumn clothes coming into the shops, though hesitant to buy any as hoping the lbs will be coming off. :)

    Mmm all the autumn veg, must start making some stews once I get back from my nice and hot holiday! :D

    Can you make low syn dumplings?

    I have my first proper posh Ragu in my slowcooker as we speak. I've had the wood burner lit every night this week :0

    I love my log burner in winter. X
