This week, it feels like fall has exploded in the kitchen. Lots of autumn colours! Lots of autumn smells! For instance, we roasted beets, sweet potatoes and butternut squash in the oven. A little garlic, a little oil, a little salt. Add some corn on the cob and you have a lovely dinner. SO good! It felt like I ate dessert instead of dinner! :) Next time, I will definitely add more beets. They were earthy and delicious - they grounded the whole dish. Which, by the way, is quite filling.
I had half of a squash left over, so I added it to some chicken and chopped potatoes, tossed it with some olive oil and salt and threw it all in the oven. Some pretty neat pops of colour.
Today I baked a pie. The kids abandoned me for an old fashioned game of chips and dice (tawleh). And that sentence makes it sound like I'm raising gamblers... but I digress. Solo apple pie. Yum. It feels like a while I've baked something. Autumn will do that to you. Despite the sunny, 28 degrees Celcius weather outside, it feels like a pie day.
Happy weekend to you!
