Six Favorites of October

In no particular order, here are some favorites from this month:

1. The Submarines

2. Squash Casserole--cheese and ease of preparation win. This is before cooking, because isn't it nice to just come home from work, toss a casserole in the oven and be done with it?

3. Oven fries--keeps the kitchen warm so you don't have to turn on the heat...yet. 425 degrees for 15 minutes on each side.

4. Photography--it's fall! Great colors, lighting, sexy men..

5. Pesto. Our basil is on its way out...bulk harvest. Once again, for some reason I have the "before" photo. Rest assured this did go into the broiler to melt that cheese.

I made the bread--it was challah, so I had to stretch the dough to braid it. This is my very secret technique.

6. Delta Spirit--another great band we hear on the "Signs of Life" program on 1690 am

Happy Thursday

I love the colors of October, too, although I dread the colors I know will come. Happy Thorsday to you, too!

I don't know what I drooled over more catching up on your blog--the homemade granola or the squash casserole. And of course, squash in the fall reminds me of acorn squash with warm butter and brown sugar... mmmm....

Fabulously inspiring today! :)

fall does sound like it has arrived it ATL. I just harvested all of our basil. Have you ever dried yours in the oven?

Jenn--indeed :)

Girli--thanks! Happy Friday, now :)

5 Star--thanks! I love that stuff.

Doggy--Rico Suave!

Marjie--Winter is all good until the end of December...then I'm ready for summer again :)

Blonde--I think I eat 4 potatoes worth every week!


Katherine--thank you!!

Tommie--I haven't--I have either just hung it up or thrown it directly in the freezer (probably not the smartest...) I've seen people blend it and freeze it, too.

Mmmm...cheesy squash casserole and oven fries!!! I hope some of that cheese made its way over to the fries.
