Hello Fall!

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?

  1. I’m laughing at the sweaters. It was in the 30s this morning. 30s. REAL sweater weather hahaha.

  2. Yeah, I’m with Many Thoughts… it has dropped into the 30s overnight here in PA and my husband refuses to turn on our heat. It is so hard to get out of bed! I’ve never had acorn squash but I do love some butternut squash!

  3. I can’t get into the fall spirit until it actually feels like fall either. I refuse to eat/drink anything fallish. The leaves in DC are just starting to change and we’ve had a few crisp mornings. It’s definitely a lot different from the NY falls I was used to growing up. I do love roasting butternut squash though. Might have to get on that soon! Yours looks great!

  4. It’s into the 30’s here as well. Supposed to snow for the first time tomorrow. 🙁 I have a hard time getting excited about fall food because I don’t like anything pumpkin, squash, etc.

    I do like cranberries and have a killer cranberry salsa recipe – does that count as fall food?
