Fall is in the air!

Have you ever done one of those quizzes that tells you what color season you are? I’m a Winter person. That’s right!  I’m a cool tone icy blue, purple, teal, green and turquoise kind of girl. My mom, on the other hand is totally in the autumn camp. She looks great in reds oranges, golds and bronze tones.  Even though I don’t look good in autumnal colors, I love EATING autumnal colors. Here’s proof with a little roundup.

Orange, yellow, browns with a few little hints of green.

Fall! You’re here. So let’s get acquainted with your color scheme.

Nut Stuffed Delicata Squash (nuts & sage make the filling taste like sausage)

Flat Roasted Chicken (because the fall is all about ROASTS)

Delicata Squash with Kale & Cannellini Beans (this recipe changed my life!)

Curried Squash & Red Lentil Soup (with fancy pants cilantro oil!!)

Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Meatballs (a fun way to eat Spaghetti squash!)

Brown Butter Biscuits & Gravy (need I say more?)

Curried Butternut Squash Soup (simple orange goodness)
