It's the time of the Autumn Equinox. I love this time of the year. It is beginning to get cooler, but not quite time to turn on the heat. The leaves begin to change and the outside is awash in colour. Michigan is really beautiful at this time of year. Sometimes in the summer it gets so hot and the grass has just about died and everything looks brown. Autumn brings colour - with orange, gold and golden leaves. It's time to stop eating those salads and start cooking some really hearty meals.
