It was another beautiful day in Asheville. Mid-60′s, wind and tons of people exploring the city.
We helped friends move into their new place downtown (hi Shaun and Liz!) this morning. Before heading home we stopped by a farmer’s market to get some fresh apples. This stand had varieties of apples that I’ve never heard before like King Lush and Jimmy Gold.
The farmer cut off tastes of different apples and handed them to us. We settled on a variety bag of pink lady’s and our other favorites. Yum!
We also grabbed a bag of honey pecans. I’m a sucker for good nuts. (TWSS)
The beautiful fall day kept me thinking about this fall recipe. I sipped on two glasses of merlot while cooking and throughout the night.
I have a stool set up in the kitchen so I can cook and do dishes without having to lean on my left leg for too long.
The Butternut Squash and Cranberry Maple Millet (I used quinoa instead of millet) just screams fall.
I made a little extra of the dressing for extra sweetness
The finished product was amazing. Its flavor is sweet but tangy and oh so nutritious. I’m definitely making this for Thanksgiving!
What is your favorite fall dish?
