Fried Food on Fridays in the Fall...

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
  • scarves
  • 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...)
  • pumpkins
  • candles
  • a cat in my lap
What are your favorites?? Let me know.


  1. Pumpkin Spice bread...that's one of my favorite things!! And the changing colors in the trees (although I like it a bit better when they bloom in the spring). Those are some of my favorite fall things. :)

  2. fall is THE best thing about new england! :)
    my favorites: running in the woods and seeing the changing leaves, listening to the leaves crunch beneath my feet, many many apples, the smell of pumpkins and spicy things, drinking my peach tea to stay warm, trader joe's maple cookies (go try them - they are amazing), and starting to think about thanksgiving and the yams i am going to eat :)

  3. -a cat in my lap for sure.
    -acorn squash (not to be confused with cornnut squash)
    -my small group girls wearing clothes that cover their bodies!
