The best part of the walk was seeing the beautiful and well-maintained old homes along our way. I only took a picture of one place that day, but we both had the same reaction when we saw this particular house:
Love the chimney!
The resale shop didn't have anything we felt we had to have, but it was fun to browse.
Lunch was at a certified green restaurant and was delicious. Locally sourced foods in a cozy setting - a fire in the fireplace and a three-piece jazz combo who played throughout our meal.
Our CSA farmer provided a lot of varieties of winter squash in the last couple of months of the season, and from the red kuri squash, I made risotto.
I'd never heard of red kuri before, and when I read up on it, I learned that it has a flavor reminiscent of chestnuts.
Since I've not had chestnuts, I didn't know what to expect, but it was not as sweet as I expected and was a little bit nutty (or perhaps I was swayed by what I'd read).
The risotto was delicious.
And last, with apologies for it being (again) about weather - we were supposed to get a couple of inches of snow and didn't, so it was easier for G to go to the day program yesterday, and the next big storm of four to six inches is expected on Friday when G will be home. So dodging the (snow) bullet makes me happy.
