It seems like I’ve been out of commission for a little while, although it’s only been a week. I have no excuse except the cool crisp air has made me want to go to bed earlier. It’s darker in the morning when I wake up and darker in the evening so my evenings feel shorted.
What is great about this however, is I love the Fall! I want to have a fire in the fireplace, wear sweaters and cook comfort food. I’m seriously ready to wear jeans and boots but living in the south I feel ridiculous doing that now….especially when everyone else is still wearing shorts and flip-flops.
The one thing I can do when it’s colder in the evening is make a satisfying dinner that makes the soul warm. That usually involves some form of pasta because I am apparently a carb freak, but in trying to make it semi healthy, I have adapted this recipe so I don’t feel so guilty.
Leaves are changing color, nights are cool and despite the fact that your neighbors are still wearing flip-flops, you can still enjoy the Fall with comfort. That will include a satisfying dinner.
So turn up the air, put on a sweater and enjoy!
