Beautiful Fall Food

Perhaps it's about time to do another Using the Share post like this one.

The seasons are changing and so are our local, fresh veggies. Apples and pears replace berries and stone fruits. Butternut and acorn squashes appear rather than zucchini and summer squash. Chard and kale replace more tender lettuces.

And there's lovely arrowhead cabbage like this:

I chopped and sauteed it in a little bacon fat with garlic and mixed it with some pasta and Parmesan. Simple and delicious.

Winds of Change

Have you noticed fall has arrived? All of a sudden a dry, cool breeze is blowing all the time. It occasionally grabs the first colored leaves from the ash trees and flutters them down across the yard. The other afternoon, the sun suddenly came out after a cloudy rainy morning. The leaves were sparkling as they shook back and forth.

I'm trying to spend more time staring out the window, taking more walks through the woods, and riding my bike down scenic roads before the leaves are gone.
