We turned on our heat for the first time last week. I generally like to try and hold off until the latest possible day in the season, when I can no longer tolerate chilly feet in the early mornings or evenings. There are many things I'm not overly frugal with, but utilities (and heat in particular) are something I watch like a hawk. The good news? On these crisp fall evenings, heat or no heat, mac and cheese pretty much always hits the spot.
