We tend to be seasonal eaters. There are just certain flavas, ingredients, and preparations that lend themselves to different seasons. Living most of our lives in the midwest, we have come to know the seasons very well, and the extremes they can bring. Southern Oregon seems to be taking it’s sweet time to transition, so now that the AM’s are nippy and there are leaves on the driveway, it has us thinking about some fall flavas from back in our homestate of Iowa. Three came to mind: Sweet potatoes, smoky BBQ, and polenta. Wouldn’t you know it, but I have just the perfect dish:
