Chickpeas, Artichokes, Fennel, and Mushrooms

feel at home/sentirsi a casa

Autumn is my favorite season.  Once I felt the first chill  in the early morning this week, fall’s freshness consumed my every thought as I was immediately brought back to my childhood.  I am not sure why, but autumn’s crispness brings about the same memories each year. The home we lived in as a wee-one was just north of New York City and it had a large deck that overlooked a wooded backyard. Walking out on each of the stained slats toward the creek was like floating on a cloud of crimson, golden, and tawny hues leaves.

This dish is that backyard, running around chasing after my brother and sisters, and their friends.  It is the sun going down earlier and having to be inside by the time the sun closed its eyes.  It is a time when we were a family.  It is home.

Sadly, the family that was is no longer, but that home and its memories will forever be etched in my memories.
