Enjoying this pumpkin patch…err…like a happy squirrel

This week’s High Five goes out to the Giants and their hunt for Orange October. Also, a second spirited High Five to all the Halloween festivities going on this weekend. Boo!

Have a fun one this weekend, kiddies!

Five of my favorite shades of orange:

  1. Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese with Sage and Gingersnap Pecan Crust. One of my favorites from the LMS archives! The flavors are all comfort and fall and drop dead delicious.
  2. Healthy Butternut Squash Soup. Mmmm nothing cozier than a creamy bowl of butternut squash soup. And, with just 3 ingredients, how can you go wrong?
  3. Butternut Squash Risotto. This dish always reminds me of my year abroad in Italy. It was one of the first things I learned to make, and it’s still a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
  4. Butternut Squash Thai Curry with Coconut Rice. Laced with fragrant Kaffir lime and lemongrass, this curry is layered with flavors, spices, and aromatics.
  5. TREAT YO SELF: Chewy Pumpkin Cookies with Toffee Bits. This cookie recipe was a long time coming. Totally worth it.
