The thing I like the most about fall is being able to turn on my oven.

During the summer months I never turn my oven on. Like never, ever, ever. Nope. Not going to happen.

Our a/c blows, and not in a good way so from about May/June till about September/October that sucker stays off.

If it’s hot out I’m grilling. While I love to grill I also love to bake, roast and just plain old broil things.

So it’s nice to finally have weather where I can turn on the oven and get creative.

Mini-me went shopping state-side last week with boytoy and his mom.

She goes over any Friday she has off from work. I give her a budget to stay within for groceries and she does my shopping for me. Not a bad deal right.

I usually requests weird baking items.
