Fall is my favorite season, and, this fall, will be the best.
Why? What makes this fall the best fall season I have had?
For the first time in years, I am not a student. Fall used to mean new classes, new textbooks, projects, papers and tests.
I couldn’t love October more right now.
Fall, however, has been my favorite season for quite some time. I love the weather, the outfits (most of mine are made for fall) and the food!
Fall produce is in season!
I’ve never enjoyed an apple so much. Last summer, apples tasted like wet cardboard. I missed the crisp snap and flavor of a fall apple. I know the best of fall apples have yet to hit my supermarket, but I’m sure my next grocery trip will yield a true treasure.
I mean look at the size of that one! It’s huge, and it was delicious.
This fall, since I’m not busy with school and since I have a new-to-me gas oven, I have plans to bake my first apple pie.
According to Eating Well, the best apples for cooking and baking are McIntosh and Granny Smith, which might be why I’m not a fan of eating either of those apples with covering them in cinnamon and sugar.

What is the best apple to eat? Honeycrisp. I completely agree. SO GOOD.
I’m already enjoying the flavor and health benefits of several fall vegetables. I ate a head or two of broccoli almost every week during September, and I haven’t stopped the pattern.
Husband hates broccoli so I get it ALL to myself. He wants to like broccoli, he really does, but he just hates it. Poor guy. He’s missing out on all those delicious nutrients: vitamins A, C and K, folate and fiber.
Husband does, however, love cabbage, potatoes and some squash. Our fall dinner menu is looking fabulous.
