November is Chill

“November is chill, frosted mornings with a silver sun rising behind the trees, red cardinals at the feeders, and squirrels running scallops
along the tops of gray stone walls.” –  Jean Hersey

November is the contradictory month of readiness and ramping down. Gear up for winter and but follow our primordial instincts to hibernate. Worlds are colliding! This gateway month to winter has it’s own special stark beauty. Trust me-it’s out there!

“Food is better in November than any other time if the year.”

 The Warren Store is proud to have two of our recipes in the Ski Town Brunch cookbook. We will have this beautiful book available for the holiday season along with Ski Town Soups.

  This month’s “under our noses” shout out goes to the valley’s own weekend holiday/ shopping extravaganza- the Ski and Skate Sale. This year’s event is November 9th and 10th. Yes there are other like minded events like this one sprinkled throughout the state but this is the mother of all ski sales weekend. Community, snowy winter optimism, great deals, and our famous Senegalese soup create a “welcome winter “ event like no other. Outfit the entire family and then come down to the store and hang out in front of the wood stove. Winter is here!
