Ok, I know, I know. While the first day of fall has arrived and the harvest moon did descended upon us and a few glimmers of cooler weather have been around … we will still be experiencing some warm (and hot) days –– come-on it’s Texas after all ––BUT … those things have really put me in the mood to welcome the change of fall and I’d like to get this autumn party started. I might be a bit late to the soirée because it seemed like weeks ago everyone else had Halloween decorations and pumpkins on the brain but I move at a markets pace and they are just starting to bring on the wonderful change of the season –– Hooray! Orange is a happy color to me and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that little Miss Mother Nature choose this time of year for sweet potatoes, pumpkins, kobocha squash, acorn squash and the like to be ready for harvest. I adore this combination of light sweet potato pillows drenched with brown butter and flecks of sage in Local Savour Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sage Sauce –– so much so that I am bringing you a step-by-step photo montage along with it, plus it’s just pretty and well, I like pretty food. Welcome Autumn!
**AND yes, I have seen the end of the year holiday paraphernalia popping up in stores, really? Crazy! Geesh, TOO early people, TOO early … Let us just enjoy this for now:
