Fortunately, here in the South, that means a slight dip in temperature and not the fearful freezing of the North. This year, I’ve decided to do a big deal about Autumn equinox though. The kids and I are going to celebrate wildly.
Well, we’re going to decorate a bit and have an end of summer feast and a beginning of fall feast. I’ll be working at dinner time on the actual equinox (Tuesday) so we’ll spread it out over a week. The highlight of the events? The pie festival.
Yep. Pies. Small pies, not full-size pies, as much as possible. But still. There will be some deliciousness. I am buying most of them (apple, cherry, pumpkin, lemon meringue) but I think I might make the chocolate one – after all, it doesn’t get easier than that. I’m even going to try to make meringue for the topping. And no, we won’t eat them all at one time, they’ll be spread out over the week too.
Anyhow. It’s nice that I can do things like this and not feel guilty about it. Moving forward with my life…
