Is it too soon to talk about fall?…Nah! With kids back in school and football season starting in another week, we definitely have autumn – and cool weather food – on the brain. What foods are you looking forward to the most?

For us, nothing signals fall more than butternut squash. We saw a few small squashed at the market last week, and we’re hoping to see a few early butternuts this week. If so, we’re thinking of making a big bowl of Pasta with Butternut Squash, Sage, and Pine Nuts at some point this weekend. Cue stomach rumblings!

We also look forward to fall apples. Eating fresh apples in season reminds us how bland and flavorless grocery store apples are the rest of the year. Many varieties of apples can keep for quite a while, so we’ll definitely be stocking up in the next few weeks. We can look forward to apple tarts for dessert and baked apples for weekend breakfasts!

What about you?
