Scrumptious Sunday #29 - Features

Hello everyone! I sure hope you've had a great week!  Mine was a little crazy.  I didn't get to write my "Features" post on Thursday night as I normally do as I had to work late.  By the time I got home, I was pooped!  I had intentions to write it late this afternoon (after work/school) but then there was a brush fire (which at one point was rank 3) that broke out very close to our home, and we spent a few hours nervously watching the fire tankers and helicopters battle the fire.  That was a little nerve-wracking (just recently a town very close to us had a bad forest fire that saw many people evacuated) and in 2003 our city was affected by a serious fire (61,000 hectares burned, over 230 homes lost, 30,000 people evacuated, and thousands more on alert)...the threat of forest fires weighs heavily on many of our minds here, and I have always had a fear of fire.  Fortunately as of this evening the fire is 100% contained and I'm now ready to get down to business!

I am loving all of the fall themed recipes that are appearing.  You sure are making me think about all the goodness to come over the fall and winter months!  Though I am still in denial that today is the last "official" day of summer.  We are setting records here with our summery weather (and therefore increased forest fire risk) - even the trees are in denial that the season is changing (aka, the leaves aren't changing yet!).
