Autumn is Coming Up!

17 Sep

My favorite season by far is Autumn. I love the weather, the wonderful smells in the air, the warm clothing, and the beautiful fall food! – Squash! *I’m doing a little squash dance… whatever that looks like*

I am sooo excited for the food I will be cooking… below is a list of food that I want to make… hopefully I will have enough time!

AcornSquash
Acorn Squash and Sweet Potato Soup from Tartelette

pumpkin-bars-cake
Pumpkin Bars/Cake from The Girl Who Ate Everything

squash-pizza
Roasted Butternut Squash Pizza from Taste for Adventure

pumpkin-quinoa-white-bean-chili
What the what?! Pumpkin Quinoa White Bean Chili from Allyson Kramer’s Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes

Drooling… Pumpkin Cheesecake from Lick the Bowl Good

risotto
Last but not least – Butternut Squash Rissotto from The Pioneer Woman

Oh my… so many wonderful squash recipes. I could go on and on… but I think this is enough for now.

Is your mouth watering? Mine sure is. This year I am also going to experiment with different kinds of squash… for example… the sweet dumpling squash, fairytale pumpkin squash, carnival squash, and buttercup squash to name a few. What fun names those are too. Who gets to name these things? I want to do that!!

I am also looking forward to drinking spiced tea, pumpkin tea, hot cider (that tastes like apple pie with a little Tuaca – so yummy!). I really wish I had a fire place I could snuggle up to… a girl can dream right?

What are you looking forward to this fall? Or are you someone who doesn’t like this season? Please comment below – I’d love to hear from you.

Check out my first post on Kabocha Squash Tortellini  for some more inspiration.
