It was 95 degrees here yesterday. And, according to the forecast, it will be just as hot for the next 7 (or, 70…) days, so I probably shouldn’t even be thinking about fall, right?
I can’t help it, though. It’s time. The schools are back in session, and the northerner in me automatically starts dreaming of red and orange leaves, beautiful gold tablecloths, and creamy pumpkin soups.
But, this year, I’m thinking about purple for my fall table. Purple is my favorite color, so I love it all year round. I have a purple phone case and way too many purple tank tops. But, I hardly have any purple – except for a couple spatulas – in my kitchen. As the fall catalogs start rolling in, I’m seeing a lot of deep purples for fall, and I’m loving it. I can totally envision my Thanksgiving bluberry pie in a dish that’s a perfect match to the filling.
Who’s with me?
