 ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS
WITH PANCETTA

My favorite Thanksgiving vegetable
is always this seasonal 
flavorful side-dish.

Peel the rough outer leaves
off just plucked sprouts.

Cut in half.
Toss with olive oil, salt & pepper.

Dice thick sliced pancetta,
sauté and drain.

Mix with freshly grated nutmeg
in a large roasting pan.

Bake in a hot 450˚ oven, uncovered
for 20 minutes.

Goes well with turkey and gravy!

SUNNY WEEK AHEAD

Nights are definitely feeling
like winter is near,
but bright sunny days
 are ahead this whole week.

Perfect weather ahead

THE WILD FOREST FLOOR

As trees bare their leaves,
the forest floor transforms
into a carpet of composting color.

Seeds and hushed colors
are ready for the first snow.
