Oh, fall. Sure, summertime is filled with sunlight, pool parties, and backyard barbecues, but autumn has plenty of things to bring to the table. Is there anything better than snuggling into your favorite sweater and sipping a pumpkin spice latte when it’s cold outside?
Speaking of pumpkin spice, it isn’t the only flavor that correlates with fall. Take a moment to remember your last Thanksgiving dinner, or brainstorm some of your favorite foods and drinks to indulge in when it starts feeling chilly outside. What are some seasonal specialties that come to mind? Maybe pecan pie, a warm cup of coffee, or a steaming bowl of oatmeal?
