E L'AUTUNNO E' ORMAI ARRIVATO *** FALL IS HERE


Purtroppo l'autunno è ormai inesorabilmente arrivato. Non ne sentivo la mancanza, anzi tutt'altro: adoro le temperature miti di quegli ottobri in cui l'estate sembra restia ad andarsene. Ebbene, questa settimana - naturalmente come annunciato dalle "previdenti"previsioni del tempo - siamo passati repentinamente dai 25 ai 13.5 gradi in un sol colpo. Ed ecco la necessità di adeguare al mutamento del tempo atmosferico il proprio abbigliamento e la propria alimentazione a quanto di stagione. on più qulle meravigliose albicocche del color del sole, le ciliege, le pesche, i fichi e le prugne, ma ora è tornato il tempo delle mele.
Poichè oggi, come tutti i sabati, è stato il giorno della mia spesa settimanale, ecco che hanno fatto capolino in casa le prime mele. A Marti non dispiace. Lei del resto non ama la frutta (così come la verdura), quindi si trova perfettamente a suo agio con le mele. Io rimpiango la frutta con i colori del sole. Il lato positivo è , i duri programmi dalla giornata permettendo (i.el lo sgombro finale del garage della mamma), l'auspicata preparazione di una deliziosa apple crumble. Fa piacere mangiarla tiepida con un pò di panna.

FALL' S HERE.

Didn't think it would come so soon. Actually we've had quite a long and hot summer which started already in May and thought we might continue to enjoy warm temperatures still for another while. Too bad th weather man had wisely forecasted a change for this week and, to put in in nut shell, temperatures dropped from 25 °C down to 13.5°C in ONE day. Can you believe that?

Heard in Bavaria as well as in the northern part of the country they're already having snow! Awuful for a person like me who would like there to be only ONE season: Summer. End of the story, had to start switching the heating on and change not only our clothes but also our eating habit all in a jiffy. No more strawberries, cherries, those wonderful sun-colored apricots and peaches, nor figs. What we will commence fall with is apples. Though my daughter will be quite happy as she does not fancy Summer fruit that much, I do not enthuse over apples. The only good thing about apples is that, my plans for tomorrow permitting (got to finish emptying my mother's garage, to make the apartment more palatable for people possibly interested in purchasing it) I will bake an apple crumble which will make us all very happy.
I'll keep you posted!

meantime...HaVe A VeRy NiCe SuNdAy!!

with love

  5. You sure made those apples look absolutely beautiful! I do eat an apple every day and apple crumble sounds divine on a cool day! I enjoy Fall and Spring, but we don't get much of that around here. It is always summer in Kuwait! Wishing you a great week. :) TAmmy

  9. Hi Rita,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is nice to hear such lovely comments. I don't know Italian even though I am half Italian. My Father came to the US when he was 12. I will try to learn some by reading the Italian then the English. Don't worry about what your daughter thinks of blogging, I have made some good acquaintances through blogging. Ciao for now!
