This past weekend we had some icky rainy fall weather, but also a gorgeous fall day on Sunday! Abundant sunshine, perfect temperature, and some gorgeous foliage. I was going to go upstate but decided to head out around Brooklyn instead and went out for a bike ride in Prospect Park. The leaves were just beautiful. Here are a few photos of the colors!
To go along with the great fall day, I decided to make a tasty fall dinner instead.
I went with salmon, Pioneer Woman Rosemary Acorn Squash, and Sweet Potato Mash.
The salmon was great, and I liked the sweet potatoes, the acorn squash was decent, although Alex wasn't a fan. I don't think it's a recipe I'd make again.
Salmon: Just pan sauteed with olive oil, butter, lots of fresh garlic, and some lime juice.
Sweet Potato Mash:
Two sweet potatoes, peeled.
A few tablespoons of heavy cream
A Tablespoon or two of butter
A bit of cinnamon and nutmeg
A splash of milk
Boil potatoes until tender, drain water. Mix with the rest of the ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
