Happy weekend! It’s finally the first day of October and it really is starting to feel like fall around here. Unfortunately, we don’t get too much leaf color change where I live, but it’s starting to get much cooler in the mornings and I will gladly take that as a sign of fall! The only desert plant that seems to change color is the ocotilla and their leaves are pretty much smaller than my pinky finger so you don’t quite get the same affect as with big beautiful trees, haha!
With fall comes warm foods like casseroles and soups and the use of some of my favorite ingredients like squash and kale. Not that I haven’t been using kale all along! I hope you all enjoy this week’s meal plan and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
