Fall Feels


Walk into any Trader Joe’s and the smell of that sweetened cinnamon, and the presence of 100’s of pumpkins makes the reality of us being in the thick of Fall inescapable. Plus, every coffee shop under the sun is boasting of their pumpkin spice lattes.  As I’m not a coffee drinker, sorry you will not be getting an recipes on that, but I wanted to share with you a fall dinner favorite of mine that incorporates pumpkin/ squash in the spirit of fall.
