Fall season is around the corner. I was shivering when hubby & I were walking to the gym this morning. Mid-50s degree Fahrenheit didn't seem too much, but it was a big jump from yesterday's 80s temperature. Fall is my favorite season and I am excited about its arrival although I will miss summer's tank tops, shorts, and flip-flops.
Fall season can also be observed from the CSA veggies hubby brought home this morning. Amongst those colorful summer vegetables, I saw two earth-colored butternut squashes. Butternut is my number one favorite squash! I can't wait to get more winter squashes, Brussels sprouts, and more beets.
I posted a picture of vegetable we got last week for those of you who are thinking about joining CSA. I know the amount of vegetables varies every week; and the veggies we get last week were more on the "full" side. But during our 3-year experience getting a full share from CSA, there was only a short period of time when the box was not full. Can you imagine having those organically & locally grown vegetables for only about $25?
When temperature drops, I also anticipate having soup for dinner like this soup that I made at the beginning of last spring. Gnocchi soup, my favorite soup. Ahh...there are a lot of thing I want to make using fall veggies I am about to receive from my favorite CSA farmer. Hopefully I can find a little time to cook in between high stacks of school works.
