After a lovely morning at the annual Pumpkin festival, the local autumnal celebration, and a long nap there’s nothing like finger food, or in this case fried meatballs for a late supper.

After getting a decent night’s sleep – it was the strangest thing – my daughter took my grandson out for a walk, I took cookies out of the oven and went out for a short walk, met up with them and wound up going for a longer walk which seemed to do the body good, I konked right out to the movie I was watching, remained just groggy enough as I shut everything off and staggered into my room – I was up early baking the remainder of the cookie dough. It’d been a while since I’d been up around 5 am. I love the early hours listening to the gentle breathing of the world before it wakes. I am nothing if not traditional. My grandmother used to keep busy in her kitchen preparing things before anyone would rise. My grandfather was a trucker and would have to get on the road during the wee hours, which as a small child led be to believe she was a saint – when I went to sleep the light was on in the kitchen with the door closed so no one would be disturbed, it was an apartment in an old house with cathedral ceilings, and when I woke the light was on in the kitchen with the door closed and I just knew she never slept. That qualified someone as a saint, didn’t it? My mother classically rose at 4am, with 5 kids it was the only quiet time before all hell broke loose, to sit quiet after putting in the oven what had been rising overnight. Such good food growing up and such peace now.

As the sky lightens I see it’s a cloudy day, the temperature will finally drop enough to be comfortable with the oven on, and it’ll be great for movies, coffee or cocoa, and hanging out in comfy clothes with no where else to have to be.

From the cooling rack, to the cookie jar on the coffee bar:

Java Jive

       I finally did it. I made espresso with the lid up like I’ve seen so many little old Italians do and just like them didn’t shoot any of it all over the stove. YES!
