TRANSITION

 

Transition is the theme for a weekly photo challenge, one that is well-timed it seems to me.

On one front, unfathomable changes are occurring in the world, both politically and environmentally.  Various leaders are meeting to discuss solutions. Wishing them wisdom on their deliberations.

For this post, however, I will step back closer to home where it has been a year of transitions with losses and some celebrations, as well.

This time of year symbolizes the whole process of transition, so clearly manifested at Thanksgiving tables and harvest festivals throughout the autumn months.

This acorn squash, locally grown, represents the beauty of that growth and change from seed to ripened produce, definitely a transition to savour!

CINNAMON CRISP DAYS OF FALL!

This week has been a smooth start for our traditionally chilly autumn.

With evening temperatures close to the daytime level,  it has been so pleasant for walking in the neighbourhood after supper.

The sky has been alternating between light white clouds, blue background and even a bit of pink!

Apples are everywhere!

This is a great time to buy local and to enjoy a healthy snack, grown close to home.

Time to mix a bit of cinnamon with a few of the local varieties. Apple crisp in the slow cooker is a treat for dessert.

Check out this recipe for apple cranberry coconut crisp by Judith Finlayson. I have made this several times, with a few alterations. Not so much of a cranberry fan so I add blueberries. Whatever you choose, the result is delicious, fills the house with a wonderful aroma and is ready to serve in a relatively short time. Keeps well in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
