    With the weather cooling off and the feel of fall in the air now is the perfect time to bake up some homemade treats for you and your family. Think pumpkin pie, ginger spice cookies, and chocolate torte!

    Stockyards Buffalo MeatloafIngredients:1/4 c white onion (small dice)

    1/4 c celery (small dice)

    1/4 c carrot (small dice)

    1 tbsp butter

    1 lb ground buffalo

    1/2 lb ground beef

    1/2 c BBQ sauce

    1 large egg (beaten)

    3/4 c Panko

    1 large clove garlic (minced)

    1 tbsp Dijon mustard

    1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

    1 dash Tabasco

    1/2 tsp salt

    1/2 tsp pepper

    3 strips bacon (raw)

    The fall air ushers in a new season of the arts and world of opera is no exception. But if youre thinking that opera is an old world relic favored by a few timeworn fanatics, think again. Some 125 opera companies currently perform in 43 states, in cities as var-ied as Phoenix, Houston, Los AngelesandSantaFe,ac-cordingtoOPERAAmerica.

    Even more impressive is that more than half of these companies were established after 1970, and more than 40 percent were founded since 1980, suggesting a growing rather than waning interest. It may surprise you to know that some 2.3 million people went to the op-erain2013alone(source:statista.com).TheInternet is chock full of web sites catering to

    operaloversbothyoungandold.Facebookpages and Twitter feeds abound. So if you havent given opera a chance, you may want to lend this 400-year-old art form and cultural experience an ear. Turns out, opera is alive andwellinAmerica. What is it about opera that people still love? Perhaps its the classics, such as La Boheme, TheMarriageofFigaro,Carmen,andMa-dameButterfly,whichseemtoenthrallandmystify audiences after so many centuries. They are still the most popular and most frequently performed operas, reaching new audiences with every production. But original operas are also being produced with some regularity. In fact, some 359 new operatic works have been produced since 2000. Some current themes of new operas include telling the stories of Jackie Kennedy, Malcolm X, and Harvey Milk. But most likely what makes

    opera such a fascinating and unique art form is the ability of the performer to both sing and act to portray their character like no other wayimaginable.Nottomentiontheincred-ible set designs and costumes. The current opera trend? Live simulcast of opera performances from the Metropoli-tanOpera,NewYorksmostreveredoperahouse. The live performances are transmitted via satellite to select venues such as movie theaters throughout the country. While some expect this accessibility to gain new follow-ers, others fear even seasoned opera fans may skip heading out to the opera house altogether for this easier and far less costly experience. Perhaps only time will tell. Either way, fall is the perfect time to discover your local opera house (or look for listings from the Mets simulcast) and enjoy this incredible art form. Bravo to you for trying something new!
