It’s October and that feels all-things-fall are in the air. Anyone who knows me, knows that this is my favorite holiday for many many reasons. The food, the holidays, and pumpkins. I love
anything almost anything that has to do with pumpkins. I mean, Dunkin Donuts pumpkin syrup is a gift from the devil that should destroyed upon first sip. I kicked off fall with a surprise for my dearest pumpkin, Jaimee. I made her a delicious rendition of broccoli cheddar soup that I found on the cover of the october edition of Food Network Magazine. It was such a process, but completely worth it. I would say to prep first, because trying to prep while cooking just made me stressed and it went smoother when I chopped/peeled everything. Also, I learned that peeling celery really enhances the flavor, Thanks Alex. And I definitely reccoment thining it out with water while cooking the last step
And while I didn’t make this centerpiece, I think it looks so easy and can not wait to do it for my Thanksgiving dinner. It makes such a nice presentation and sometimes, you can’t find a vase when you’re trying to entertain too. This solves all problems. Jaim, her mother, and I went to a Pumpkin Patch to enjoy the beautiful weather and these were on every table at the Hard Cider Tasting (bought a bottle of the Cherry Moon- delish!) Maybe I will be doing these for some upcoming nuptials for two of my very dear friends.
And this was the crowning jewel. It even looks like a gemstone. Well, maybe that’s just the butter making me delerious, but this acron squash was just about the most delicious thing I have ate in a long time. I even put a little less butter than it called for and it was still melt-in-you-mouth good. I highly reccomend going to your local farmers market befor winter comes and grabbing up some squash. Find a good recipe online by a simple Google search. I found a simple butternut squash recipe that involved 2 tbs oil, a garlic clove, and some parmesean cheese. Thats it. and it was just like roaster potatoes. Try it.
Hope you can all get out and enjoy the beautiful fall we are having— despite the rain today.
Happy Harvest everyone,
