Five Things

I decided to take a page from Cupcakes and Cashmere and do a Friday post on five things I am currently smitten with lately. The first of which is Satsuma mandarins.  I've sung their praises before, and this citrus season I'm in full obsession-mode again.  I usually bring two to work and snack on them during the day.  Easy to peel, no seeds, and more flavor than a tangerine.  Addictive!

I can't seem to get enough butternut squash lately.  Natalie made an amazing butternut squash risotto last weekend, and I have high hopes of making a chipotle butternut squash soup soon.

I finally got around to getting a second enameled cast iron pan at Williams Sonoma last weekend.  I haven't broken it in yet, but I have a feeling it will get plenty of use in the next fifty years or so.

My dad has been unearthing old photos and emailing them to me recently.  I can't say it's a trip down memory lane because I was never there.  It's amazing how similar you look to your parents when you see them at your own age.  Here's my mom at a cart buying garlic in Italy back in the 70s.  A farmers market of sorts.  Like mother like daughter.

And how could I end a list of my five favorite things without including Harper girl?  She's just as cute as ever, but you knew that already.
