When you hear the word autumn, you probably don’t envision Gulf breezes, palm trees, and hibiscus flowers in full bloom. But even in my tropical village of Pinecraft (in the heart of Sarasota, Florida), autumn is as distinct a season as it is for folks in the north. While we don’t have the spectacular changing colors on the trees or a crispness to the air that people enjoy elsewhere in the country, there are other telltale signs of fall.
I love a good recipe. And what could be more satisfying than a mouth-watering dish with a heartwarming (and sometimes hilarious) descriptive story to go along with it?
What inspires you to have a picnic? Perhaps it’s the warm weather that motivates you to grab a glass of lemonade and a sandwich and head outside. Any meal eaten outside can be done in picnic fashion. As a little Amish girl, I loved to take my lunch and sit on the front steps of the old farmhouse where I grew up.

Cooking & Such by Sherry Gore
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Update: There were over two hundred wonderful participants in this “Win a copy of Taste of Pinecraft by Sherry Gore.” The winner is Sandra Stover! Congratulations, Sandra!
The screen door slams for what seems like the hundredth time as my children brush past the blooming yellow mums, dashing in and out, hopeful for a little taste of something tantalizing from my kitchen.
Later, tummies are stuffed with turkey and trimmings, and the children’s play has wound down to a slower pace. They’ve gathered on the braided-rug-covered floor, taking turns playing checkers, toy cars, and Dutch Blitz. The aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg mixed with creamy pumpkin filling wafts through the air as the oven timer signals the pie has baked to perfection.
Reflecting on Thanksgivings past in my home when my children were small fills me with a joy that warms my heart.
As the seasons of the year change, so do circumstances in our lives, especially as we grow older. Some changes are greeted with anticipation and are welcomed, like when our children fall in love and marry, or when a pink or blue blanket gets knitted in celebration for a little one on the way. Other changes are not so welcome and come unexpectedly, such as sickness or even the loss of a loved one.
