From the bright, clear, cool days to the leaves turning colors, it’s no surprise Autumn is a favorite season for many; and that includes the team here at steve mckenzie’s! We’re thrilled to be in the midst of fall, and although you may not need convincing, thought we’d share some of our favorite things about fall.
The food. It’s the season for fresh apples, pumpkin everything, and fabulous produce from our farmer’s market. Both Steve and Jill love to be in the kitchen, whether they’re preparing a simple pan of roasted root vegetables, or baking one of JIll’s famous pumpkin chocolate chip breads. This recipe is very similar to the one Jill’s been using for years. She does use gluten-free flour instead of the regular, all purpose flour, and bakes it in mini loaf pans, that way is can be frozen for later enjoyment or easily shared with family and friends. Try it for yourself and enjoy a taste of fall – let us know what you think!
Outdoor gatherings. Be it a tailgate or a neighborhood block party – even a crisp night on the back porch with the one you love – they’re all great excuses to cuddle up in a lovely throw and enjoy a nice, warm beverage.
Breast cancer awareness month. This time of year, folks gather together in the name of a great cause, and that’s breast cancer awareness. Is there another month more focused on a singular cause? We think not – and it gives us a wonderful, heartfelt feeling when folks come together like this. In celebration of breast cancer awareness month, we’ve got a fabulous, PINK section of our showroom on display. Come in and see it for yourself!
We’ve saved our favorite thing about fall until now because, well, that’s just how we operate – saving the best for last here. Our favorite thing about autumn is HALLOWEEN! Steve and Jill are fantastic celebrators of Halloween and truly enjoy getting into the spirit – costumes and all!
Although we think the real reason fall is so favored is because it’s the start of the holiday season. Gathering with family and friends, celebrating all that’s near and dear. It certainly is a most wonderful time of the year!
