Cool air. Football season. New produce on the shelf. Pumpkin EVERYTHING. Changing leaves. My birthday. My anniversary.
There are literally a million reasons that I love fall. It’s no secret that it’s my favorite season and every time it starts to draw near, I get excited about all the changes. What am I usually most excited about when it comes to fall?
Obviously. Are you really all that shocked? Pretty much for any season I get excited for the food it brings. Food is just the best.
I thought I would share three of my favorite fall food things I’m most excited about so you can start getting excited about it too!
Sure, you can get apples all year round but they just TASTE better during the fall when they’re actually in season. Plus, you get to go apple picking and make all the delicious things with apples.
Yes, pumpkin is great but it gets all the glory during the fall when there are dozens of other squash varieties that are just as good. Kabocha, delicata, acorn, spaghetti, butternut, carnival. All delicious and all are abundant in fall, so experiment with a new-to-you squash! And of course get a little pumpkin in there too 😉
After sweating to death during the summer and rarely ever turning on my oven, I relish roasting things again, creating warm soups again, and throwing a bunch of things in a casserole dish and topping it with a creamy sauce again. Salads are tasty but soup is pretty much soul food.
What do you love about fall? Food related or not 🙂
