I’ve been performing some indoor cooking for the previous couple of weeks, however I feel summer time cooking is formally over now.

Properly, aside from this weekend when it’s presupposed to be heat, however undoubtedly after that.

It has been a bizarre fall – to match the bizarre summer time.

So right here we now have the primary skillet dinner of the winter season.

One thing completely different? Rooster, Rice & Butternut Squash Skillet

Sausage, Spinach, & Pasta Skillet

For the final 10 years (or so) I’ve been gifting away winter squashes and pumpkins to anybody coming too near our home.

Even after these efforts, we had been consuming butternut squash and pumpkins nicely into Feb. & March, and feeding the compost as nicely.

This yr, it’s not even the tip of Oct. and we solely have a dozen or so small squash left and so they’re not maintaining nicely.

There might be tons extra spinach, in addition to different veggies in my dinners this yr. Sadly, all of these different veggies are a bit extra scarce and costly for the time being.

I’ll be shopping for tins of tomatoes this yr, too – for the primary time in latest reminiscence.

Life adjustments!
