I mentioned a few days ago that the entrance of fall is not easing in as it usually does. There is something about this season when you just know it’s in full bloom. I’m taking about the moment you walk out the door and are embraced with a crisp clean essence that fills your lungs. That very moment is when I know fall has arrived. I have yet to feel it.
But I have been trying to accept the change to colder weather by welcoming fall foods back.
This salad is one example. A true taste of Autumn. Sweet and savory butternut squash, earthy brussels sprouts, cinnamon glazed pears….I’d say that covers most of my favorite fall foods in one bowl.
