Fall Squash and Arugula Salad

It is officially my favorite season - in the rest of the country, cooler temperatures are setting in, leaves are starting to change color, and sweaters are starting to make their appearance. Except here in Arizona, where it is endless summer. While I wait for the air cool down, I decided my cooking did not have to wait - so come on in and enjoy this beautiful autumn salad.

Hatch Chile Turkey Meatball Soup

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but I live in the Southwest AND I love spicy food. September is usually when the rest of the country starts to see temperatures go down and fall sweaters start to come out. That is likely not happening for a few months here in Arizona, but I wanted to kick off autumn with a flavorful soup and pretend it is not 100 degrees out.

I am trying hard to make my meal prep easier on my busy schedule. Working for a non-profit during a busy fundraising season means I am not at home nearly as much as I would like to be.
