Although fall is definitely my favorite season – how can anyone not love it? it’s not as cold as the winter, it’s not as scorching as summer and it’s not as unpredictable as spring… And that’s just for everything that it’s not. Apart from the fact that it is also a lot of really good things…
…like colorful and golden and cozy and yum – I like to hold on to some of the last summer things on the market. Like Zucchini and Summer Squash. preferably home-grown (thank you to my other family). That makes it even more brilliant to transition to the fall harvest, soon enough. Squash, Chestnuts, Mushrooms… I’m all yours. After this here salad.
