Apple tea cake with caramel sauce. It sounds so delectable this time of year. The leaves have mostly fallen from the trees and are covering the ground in a mass of crunchy brown. They have lost the vibrant oranges and yellows of October and November. The sky is usually grey here and invokes thoughts of “Brrr” (the beer is good, too). I start to load up on winter warmers and find myself scouring the shelves of grocery stores for the new release of the Abyss (even after I’ve found our quota of bottles for the cellar). I’m excited to get to drink Auld Acquaintance again. I’m making plans to make Wassail this year, or maybe even Flip!
