First proper cold day today. Which I don’t mind in the slightest. I have always been a fan of Autumn as a season; crisp evenings, first smell of wood fires and an excuse for a new coat. I also like autumnal recipes, so the classic chorizo sausages / 3 beans / red wine / smoked paprika casserole fitted the bill. Am sure the next spicy butternut squash soup isn’t too far behind it.
