There is something about this time of year, that makes me happy. I love my home and I love the feeling of snuggling in. And, I absolutely love to make our home smell like a little bit of heaven. With the cooler weather, cooking has been for me so therapeutic, so restive, so calming. The first dish is a fall/winter standard in our home. This is healthy eating yet the flavours would put anything McDonald’s or Wendy’s could possibly offer to shame. On the bottom is a squash, either butternut or acorn will do, then the meat mixture, then the potatoes (green from being cooked with kale) and topped with extra old cheddar cheese. Served with a little coleslaw and there’s always extra meat mixture…anyone want the recipe…let me know. The second is a cinnamon sticky bun, still warm from the oven. They were so fresh, soft and tender….a real treat for the family. Again, recipe needed, just ask.
This is a just taste of things to come. Our cool weather is going to turn very hot in a couple of days…+30 degrees.
