the feeling of fall

the other day i received my latest issue of Everyday Food and was surprised by the selection. i usually find just a few menu items that are appealing to me but this time everything looked so good. maybe it is the cooler weather and the prospect of soups and roasted fall vegetables. i am not sure but it was enough to inspire me to plan a few weeks worth of meals.



last night we enjoyed the roasted fall vegetable and ricotta pizza. the flavors were amazing, nothing beats roasted potatoes and squash.



today is a cooler day and so i was able to test out my new sweater. i am pleased with the outcome and still wonder why it took me so long to finish. i guess if i did not have so many projects going on at once i would have completed it by now. if only i had a bit of the Type A personality in me. oh well i will settle for my Type Z personality any day. this is the title i give myself since i am so far from Type A. i guess the correct term for it would be ADD but oh well.


miss A had a few shots today and is napping so i am off to take advantage of the time i have.

I love love love roasted veggies. I am a convert to parsnips - roasted they are so good. Squash, leeks, onions, potatoes...

I love roasted fall vegetables! If it ever cools down I'm going to cook some.

That sweater looks fabulous! What a beautiful color. Knitting totally escapes me.

I am now craving a roasted vegetable fritata for brunch. But instead since I am in my cubicle I will settle for my fruit and grain bar and some water. But it looks like a good idea for dinner.

I am always so impressed by a finished jumper...I have a guilt ridden collection of sleeves, backs, and fronts but sadly, only one complete set! And what a great colour...

oh, oh, oh! Love that sweater. I've been too chicken to ever attempt one but that cowl neck might just be enough inspiration. What pattern, if any, did you use?
