In between recipes, I had to slip in a few photos of the fall leaves in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is beautiful. The woods are different in Wisconsin (less underbrush I think than in the Mid-Atlantic) they are more tall trees and clear woods, less hills and more pines.

With us leaving for China in April, it will be at least 2 years before he has a shot at being in Wisconsin and wearing shorts at the same time.

It was so cold on our trip that we slept under 2 down comforters and I nixed my over-enthusiastic plans for a long photo shoot outside of the pretty leaves. So instead, here are a few photos taken with everything in point-and-shoot mode in between shivers. At least the cold meant more time in front of the fire with a bowl full of gumbo…
