Summer just doesn’t want to say goodbye here in Rhode Island.

Typical New England weather, it’s a high of 79 and sunny today but Saturday will be a high of 53.  The temperature changes are so unpredictable, but I could never live anywhere else.

I’ve been patiently waiting for the leaves to change their vibrant colors, and finally today, I came home from work and let Dallas out and saw this amazing view from my deck:

Fall in Rhode Island

The weather may be a little wacky but its days like this that make me love my state…Ahhh, the little things…

Anyways, back to dinner…I’ve been going a little pumpkin crazy my last couple of posts (sorry non-pumpkin fans!) so I thought we could switch it up with this wonderfully easy apple pork recipe.

This is a quick & easy fall crockpot dinner that’s cozy, warm, and requires minimal effort (hooray!).
