Autumn has given us her last hurrah. It was a lovely one too.
This photo was taken at the end of October. Now that treeline is bare.
The first few days of November have been gorgeous and warm. This trend is not to last. By Friday we will see cooler temps and rain coming our way. Also there are whispers Saturday and Sunday might bring a winter mix.
Early this morning I grabbed my camera and caught the full moon. It was even more magnificent last evening. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to take a photo.
Butternut squash is a perfect fall dish. I baked this at 425 degrees for approx. 1 hour. That makes the shell so soft and one can cut it in half easily.
Then scoop out the seeds...
Add some butter, salt and pepper, or sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar and cinnamon and you have a delicious dish.
It makes a great substitute for recipes that call for pumpkin such as pie, bread or muffins. I can never tell the difference.
Well sweet friends I hope all of you are enjoying autumn's last hurrah! Have a wonderful end to your week.
