Happy Fall everyone! Fall is that time of year where you can curl up in a cozy blanket and read a good book while sipping on a pumpkin spice latte. It doesn’t get that cold in California so I just pretend to be cold and wrap myself in a blanket anyways. In previous years, I hadn’t really gotten the whole FALL craze.
It was just another season and I wasn’t going to guzzle down pumpkin spice anything just for the heck of it. Then, this year changed that. Blogging has helped me to appreciate the wide variety of things we have going on during the year.
It’s so fun to make food according to season or special occasion and I didn’t really realize that until I started putting a lot of effort into recipe creation. Now that I do, I love planning things that follow each season so that y’all have amazing recipes for each season.
Today I am making a fall wrap. I love wraps and think they are perfect for bringing to work or packing for a hike. I wanted to put a twist on my regular turkey, cheese, lettuce, tortilla wrap, so I decided to put a little fall into it! This wrap has some seasonal vegetables like carrots and parsnips mixed with some fall sweets like maple syrup.
It’s so delicious and gets me in that mood to wrap myself in a blanket, read a good book, and sip that pumpkin latte.
