Today is a perfect example of just why I love the fall best. The last few days it has warmed up again, yet the evenings and nights are cool, I can have the windows open, pile on the blankets, and snuggle in. Oh I love it!!! But today, oh today it has been raining, and with it came a cool front which makes me crave the comfort food of my youth. Every Thanksgiving we have chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes, so I thing that is something I associate with cool days and happiness. I know people in the west who say ew "starch on starch", but oh my gosh that starch is the best tasting starch in the world! So with the cool weather comes a yearning for that wonderful starchy comfort.
I love a good long rain shower like we have had today, it is just so darn relaxing to be inside and listen to the steady drum of the raindrops on the windows and know that I am inside, warm and happy. Add the cool weather and that brings me to the other comfort food I am craving, chocolate brownies warm from the oven with a big glass of cold milk. Either that or a nice cup of hot chocolate. Open the windows let the cool night air in and relax with some hot chocolaty goodness. Again, being able to be cold, but wrap up in a blanket is the best. I just cant describe how great this weather makes me feel. So if you will excuse me, I am going to go and put on my big flannel Jammie's and take those brownies out of the oven. Ah, this is the life.
