This Week's Stories:

Feature: Autumn Decorations from the Garden
Autumn is often associated with certain decorations, including cornucopias,
garlands, straw or grapevine wreaths, and dried flower arrangements. Although
many decorations can be bought ready-made, making your own can be a fun
family activity for a fall afternoon.

Recipe: Swordfish Grilled on a Cast Iron Griddle
This recipe is ideal for entertaining because the fish can predictably be plated
within five or six minutes after going into the oven, and it finally solves the
problem of some guests’ preferring salmon or tuna rare or medium rare and
others wanting it more well done.
