Toss a necklace
of acorns and berries
round the necks
of the sentries that
watch over the kitchen.
Savory smells of
pumpkin pie
and roasting meat
and bubbling soups
surround their roost
above the stove.
The warm, cozy
nesting time is
close at hand.



About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
