A Delicious Fall Recipe

Last week we had a small glimpse of brisk, cool Fall weather which got me in the mood for making this recipe I found on The Pioneer Woman's site.  So even though this week feels hotter than summer (104 on Wednesday) once it cools down again for good this will be something you will surely want to try!  It is easy and very delicious!  

Here is how I made it...

Cut the acorn squash into wedges and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a little bit of salt.  Pop that in the oven for 20 minutes.
While the squash is baking grab some fresh rosemary and chop it up finely... inhale the wonderful scent of freshly chopped herbs... Mmmm!
Combine the butter, brown sugar and rosemary into a paste...
Take the squash out of the oven and smear the all paste mixture on the wedges...
Continue to bake until golden.  Drizzle sauce over the wedges to help them carmelize.

There is the printable recipe from The Pioneer Woman's website.

Goodbye Summer... Hello Fall...

Fall has finally arrived.  Even though I don't live in a part of the country where the leaves change and display a beautiful palette of colors, there are different sorts of Fall colors I enjoy this time of year...

Sunset at Creek Park last week

The colors of the season are brilliant and beautiful!

The shadows in the afternoon are long and the breeze is brisk.

 At the end of each day it's a wonderful sight to behold.
