With the passing of Labor Day, another summer season comes to an end.
We crossed off just about everything on our list.
Weekday trips to the beach now on hold.
We start to think about leaving behind Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home cookbook (she may the only one to get my boys to like beet ice cream). But only the summer section. There are too many fall flavors to look forward to. Winter ones too.
Late-evening gatherings begin to dwindle, where the sun sets at 8:00, fooling the kids into thinking the night has only just begun.
I'll miss thinking up dishes (like this plum galette) for those gatherings too.
And so it's back to school again…
…but the memories of the season always remain.
