Visit abandoned Norwich State Hospital and Daniel's Village, hear stories of demonic possessions, and discover the mysteries of Plum Island and the lore of Pirate treasure and witchcraft.

Autumn in New England Favorites

I love this time of year. Autumn is my favorite season. I prefer the cooler, crisper days, the changing of the colors of the leaves on the trees, the amazing sunrises and sunsets over the water, hearty foods, movies, the return of favorite TV shows and Halloween.

So, a favorites list:

On TV: Once Upon A Time

Restaurant: Home Restaurant

Movie: John Carpenter's Halloween

Recipes: Parker's Beef Stew from Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa)

Roasted Citrus-Herb Game Hen from Giada

 Apple Crisp from Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa)
