Well, it finally feels a little bit like fall here in Florida! That basically means it dropped below 80 degrees today and that couldn’t make me happier. I have had an acorn squash and a butternut squash in my house all week, but I couldn’t bring myself to cook them in the balmy Florida humidity. I decided today is the day! As soon as I got home from church, I started roasting. Speaking of church, look at these little church-going cuties!
I work most Sundays during this time of year so it’s on my husband to get the kids ready and off to church with him. I’m so thankful he makes that a priority. I’m also so thankful for how well he dresses our kids. I about died when I saw their little sweaters and jeans when I got home today. So cute!
I started roasting the squash I had on hand (I used this recipe for the acorn squash) and just sorta winged it for the butternut squash, adding cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Unpictured is a bunch of cubed butternut squash that I’m saving for another day, but that tasted WAY more delicious than roasting it this way. Lesson learned. The acorn squash though? Fantastic.
I had my first pumpkin beer yesterday, and I’ve been putting off anything else fall-themed out of protest for the weather. But maybe we’ve finally turned a corner? Or maybe it’s time to hurry up and enjoy everything fall-related before the temperatures rise again later this week. 🙂
What is the weather like where you are? What is your favorite fall-themed food?
