I love summer, it’s my favorite season. I love the hot weather. I love that I can wear shorts and tank tops and sandals. I love that it doesn’t rain. I love all the fresh fruits and vegetables that are available – strawberries, cherries, peaches, tomatoes, corn on the cob, I could go on…………
But by now, I’m kinda tired of summer, and I’m looking forward to fall. I’m ready for cooler weather, sweaters and tights, and of course, running is so much easier. I’m almost ready for the rain – not! But I am ready for my fall and winter recipes. This is one I have had all summer and was just waiting for fall to try, and it’s great – Al even likes it!
