Chanterelles. Heralding the Return of Autumn

Every year, the August long weekend brings a chill in the morning air. A sure sign of autumn to come.  We’ve had blazing summer days and nights this year, and I don’t want to move on, but then I spotted first-of-the-season chanterelles. Tiny and firm, not the water-logged ones we see later in the fall. Embrace change I say!

 A few shallots, fresh thyme, white wine. What lovely specimens! Such willing plate mates alongside garden beans, rice and roast chicken. A perfect autumnal dinner in August. I’m ready for fall.
Time to move on.
