I'm in a bit of a food coma right now.... I just fried up 7 chiles rellenos (I'm linking my recipe) and I had some batter left, so I fried up some zucchini as well! These are not my photos, but they are accurate representations of what the finished product looked like... I'm already starting to dream up what else I could fry up in the egg batter of chiles rellenos: mushrooms, butternut squash, sweet potato, onion, potato, eggplant, polenta... Fried Food Fridays might need to be a tradition!
Other fall favorites for me right now, in no particular order:
- acorn & butternut squash
- crisp air
- jackets & sweaters I haven't worn in months, so they feel like new
- the smell of baking bread (I found a gluten-free bread machine mix at Lazy Acres that tastes great....)
- using a blanket on my bed
- NBA season is back!
- UCSB soccer games
- coffee brewing in the morning (OK, I like coffee in the summer, winter and spring...)
- a cat in my lap
