Hiya hi, and say hey to Friday.
So it seems like once the cool weather peeks around the corner, most peeps take a craving for savory, rich, comfort food. Or am I confusing fall with winter? Any which way you slice it, for me right now, I’m all about the comforts of roasted squash in salads. The other night, I had a fantastic roasted squash and kale side dish from one of our favorite pizza joints that was essentially a salad. It made the cravings kick in. So what did I do? I hopped to and made this kale crunch fest with creamy sweet bsquash and wild rice. OMG, it’s literally a craving I’m so glad I didn’t deny. And the leftovers were mwwwaaa!
