My neighborhood farmer’s market is still full of dark, gorgeous heirloom tomatoes, but there are a few signs of Fall creeping in. Mostly in the abundance of hearty root vegetables.
As the days grow shorter and colder, I start thinking about interesting stir fry combinations, soups, and casseroles I can make once and eat all week.
