I know berry season is over, but fall fruit, like apples and pears, make me itchy unless I cut off the skin or cook them. And I really wanted berries in my salad, which also has walnuts, avocados, and goat cheese. This is a summer salad I guess, and I'm getting really ready for fall food. Today was such a beautiful fall day and now I'm baking cinnamon rolls (not the real kind though) so my apartment will feel warm and cozy. When I go back to Seattle for Thanksgiving, I'm going to bring back a blender and mandolin slicer so I can make soup and slice squash.
