Autumn was officially here just a few short(er) days ago, and I have to admit, if I have a favorite season, it’s this one. The bees begin to wane, the nights get longer, and the food – oh, the glorious food! – it gets heartier and more, well, autumnal. Which leads me to today’s Lunchtime Poll:

I just did an inaugural batch of home-juiced mulled apple cider this weekend, along with red velvet cake and Julia Child’s hearty leek & potato soup, and fresh-baked bread. Bread isn’t really seasonal, but a home loaf goes so well with potato soup, doesn’t it? What about you?
