Monday Melody--Aromatic Autumn


Sunday supper: Baked herbed chicken and a delicious casserole using a recipe from the talented and creative chef, Joyce at the blog OctoberFarm. I have made this casserole before and it is a favorite of the family's; it makes mouths water and stomachs rumble as the aroma of baking casserole wafts through the house. You must make this! Joyce says that even kids that won't touch a zucchini will love this. Click on the link to see the recipe and visit Joyce's great blog: OctoberFarm's Zucchini Casserole
 (unfortunately I forgot to snap a photo of the yummy goodness; all that is left is an empty dish)


A chill in the house the last couple of days. The family room especially is cooler than the rest of the house. So the first woodstove fire of the season. Just a small one. Stepping outside to look at the fabulous full moon, the aroma of wood smoke lightly drifting upwards immediately evoked autumns past. A comforting feeling.

And burning sage and rosemary on the night of the Full Moon is tremendously aromatic and most conducive to meditation and spell work. Smells so good in the chilly night air.

Happy Birthday today to my dearest friend and godmother to my children!! We love you!!

So far I've never been disappointed when following any of Joyce recipes. She sure knows how to cook!

Cold, rainy and windy here today, the fire is burning in the stove but it takes its time for the heat to spread I'm afraid.

Have a great day!
Christer.

We've quite a chill in the house as well. Hopefully by the end of the week when it gets colder out, the new super will have gotten the key for the boiler room. Sounds like a yummy dinner. We had herb roasted chicken as well, but I served mine with Arroz con Gondulas.
