Fall Food

Fall foods are my favorite seasonal foods. If cherries were ripe in the fall, it would be perfect since I also love cherry season. Last year I discovered how much I love acorn squash and made it frequently so I was excited to see our first acorn squash of the season in our CSA box this past week. I baked it for dinner tonight with a bit of butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Divine. I also have planned our first pumpkin dish of the season for this upcoming week - pumpkin soup. I love soup and I love pumpkin so it's great.

Today I needed to use up the rest of the zucchini we got in our box this week. It seems like it will never end and Jeremy and I are both getting a little tired of eating it. I decided to make some zucchini bread out of it, but we didn't have quite enough so I added in some grated honey crisp apple. Another reason to love fall - honey crisp apples are on sale. These have been my favorite since I first tasted them two years ago.

The bread tastes pretty good, but the texture is a little weird - moist and almost spongy. I think I should have either squeezed out some of the moisture from the apple or maybe added a bit more flour. I'll have to play around with it and see what I can do. At least it tastes fine.
