It is a beautiful weekend here in Mississippi. I think fall weather is finally here to stay. Last week we had days where the high was in the 80s. This weekend has been milder - in the 60s and low 70s. I raked the backyard yesterday and added the leaves to my compost.
This morning I woke up and decided to make pumpkin waffles. I always use a waffle mix - Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain - when I make waffles. Today I added a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin puree and a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to the mix. Chip topped his with plain yogurt sweetened with honey and vanilla. I topped mine with butter and maple syrup.
We took a bike ride on the Natchez Trace back in September, and it was gorgeous. A rainy day was rolling in while we rode. We barely made it home before the rain started. Today I plan to go on the same ride. The leave are colorful now. Back in September everything was a luscious summer green.
