Week 36 - Baby It's Cold Outside

Granted, we live in southern California, so it's not that cold.  But after a week of crazy winds and temperatures dipping into the low 40s - which is pretty cold for us - it seems like it's time to think of some warm, savory recipes that can be made with our wonderful box of vegetables and fruits.  I'm thinking of a lot of roasting (beets, acorn squash, last week's carry over butternut squash), baking, and simmering of soups and preserves.  Even if it's cold outside, we can be warm and cozy inside our home and bodies!

In the box this week
(top) lettuce, cilantro, beets, carrots
(bottom) acorn squash, avocado, spinach, lemons, apples, persimmons

Meals/recipes for the week
Maybe I'm taking on a little more than is realistic, but I really don't want anything to go to waste.  With fall sports over, we'll all have more time at home, so even if I'm setting a lofty goal, it will be fun to see if I can get it all done.
This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name by Dean Martin.
