What does Autumn mean to you?
Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte! The blended taste and aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin topped with whipped cream always puts me in an autumn mood. I actually like anything pumpkin spiced this time of year. I love how so many companies like Quaker Oatmeal and Thomas English Muffins roll out limited edition pumpkin spiced products this season. I think JELL-O also has a pumpkin flavored JELLO, but I have to draw the line somewhere. I also make mini pumpkin muffins and pumpkin spiced bread. It’s not just pumpkin spice that I like; I also enjoy anything flavored with the taste of apple cinnamon, maple syrup, hazelnut, and figs. Yael S.
I like wearing sandals, but oh how I miss the feel of my opaque, black tights on my skin. Now I don’t need to worry about cracked heels and unpedicured toes. There is just something so comforting about slipping on some tights (in any color, not just black). I also can put away my pink lipsticks and take out my cranberry and brown shades. Everything feels so fresh and new! Shaindy H.
Taking out my thick comforter when I sleep. There is nothing cozier than cuddling under a warm blanket with the window open enjoying the crisp weather while enjoying a good book. I also sleep better in the fall because I don’t have to deal with the AC being on too high or low. Chana S.
The feel and sound of crunching leaves when I walk. Of course, I have to mention the changing colors of the leaves as well. I love the vibrant oranges and yellows. Walking around the neighborhood this time of year every block looks like a painting. Libby Nadel
My husband sitting on the couch watching football all day on Sundays. It’s annoying, but he does make it up to me later by later taking the kids out to the backyard to throw the football around. Michal C.
Candied apples. There is something about those sticky apples on a stick that just scream autumn to me. For some reason, I only see them in stores from Sept-Nov. Mike Bendi
Making soups again. Yes, you can make cold soups like gazpacho, tomato bisque, or carrot in the summer, but I much prefer the taste of a warm bowl of matza ball, chicken, or minestrone soup. Hot soup is the ultimate comfort food and chicken soup really is Jewish penicillin; it can cure anything! Roizy Abraham
