The sky was black and and you could almost feel the static electricity in the air from the ominous thunderclouds. Even though it was still warm, the promise of rain indicated that fall is here. As I braved the threatening elements (more snarl than bite) and headed to the market, I received another indicator that the season has in fact changed. Oranges and nuts! I must confess that I did not purchase any oranges for they looked a little too green (and therefore too tart), but I did have the opportunity to partake of some fresh chestnuts that a generous local friend decided to share. This week I officially said goodbye to warm weather and the accompanying fruits and vegetables but the trade off is comfort food. Meat and hearty dishes slowly cooked to mouthwatering perfection. So although I have had to close my patio door for the season (something I have not done since April), the trade off is well worth it.
This week’s damage was 25 Euros:
