Wonderful Autumnal Eats!

Oh my days guys..it's been too long! I'm really sorry for my break in posting, I've been very busy for the last few weeks but I have a bit more time on my hands now so I will be back to posting lots again :) yey!

I love this time of year, the evenings may be getting darker and colder but that just means snuggling up on the sofa, big cups of tea, fluffy socks, woolen jumpers, walks in the fresh crisp air and crunchy leaves under foot. We all know it's going to be a long and cold winter ahead of us, but the sunny autumn days (although as I write this, it's foggy and drizzly out) will make the transition a little easier.

This time of year my breakfasts switche from lovely fruits and yogurt or muesli to a steaming bowl of porridge and honey with seeds and LOTS of cinnamon! It's so hearty and gives you loads of energy to get you through a chilly morning..brrrr!

I also adore of the gorgeous fruits and vegetables that are in season at this time of year, in particular pumpkins, gourds and squashes! Use them in soups, casseroles, stews, breads, cakes, pasta dishes (ravioli in particular!) or simply just slow roasted in the oven, they are so versatile and delicious.

Pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and varieties are in all the markets and shops at the moment, but don't just buy them to carve spooky faces to keep the spirits away, cook up a storm with them!

  1. I'm obsessed with butternut squash as of late-- and this post is making me want to run out and get a huge load of great veg! ;)
