Comforting Roasted Butternut Squash, Bacon and Sage Risotto

Happy Friday!!

Enjoy!!

Although I do some baking, I don't consider myself a baker as I can't stand having to measure. When it comes to cooking my philosophy is add a bit of this, a dash of that, a splash of something doesn't hurt, never forget some type of pepper and always add at least one clove of garlic. Thanks for stopping by my Spicy Texas Kitchen and I hope to see you again!!! Melody

    1. Thanks Rhonda ๐Ÿ™‚ the good news is I’ve got a sweater on today… The bad news is I’m still in shorts. Ah well I’ll take what I can get at this point at least we are not still in the upper 90’s like last week.
