While walking Dexter the dog today, I saw something that caught my eye. Amidst the shriveling jack-o-lanterns and wisps of spider webbing left tangled in the bushes, was the familiar twinkle of Christmas lights. I guess I should have seen it coming. The commercials began the day after Halloween. Decorations have been springing up in the corners of every store for weeks. The holiday season seems to be approaching faster than ever before. Soon fall will be gone, winter will take it’s place, and all of the lovely fall recipes I’ve been creating lately will be out of season! I know the holidays are a tempting time, but let’s try to enjoy the present! When the pumpkin spice lattes start flowing in September and Christmas begins before Thanksgiving, things have gone too far! So in this last breath of fall, I’m giving myself a challenge. Five fall posts in five days, all featuring my new love – squash! Join me on this adventure and enjoy our current season with a few cozy recipes that will keep you feeling warm on these chilly fall nights.
