Since Mack was born, M and I talk a lot about where we see ourselves settling down for the long haul. We’ve made it a goal to hopefully decide by the time Mack is in first grade, which gives us some time. I’ve always had my heart set on Colorado. The Rockies have always felt like my mountains, it feels like home. It sounds funny to say, I love the Sierras, but they don’t have the same feel. Before recently, I’ve always felt like Northern California is another stop on our journey and while that very well may be true, it’s starting to feel more and more like home. There’s a solid community here and I’ve met some amazing people.
One of those people (Emma!) came to my house a couple weeks back just to hang out and cook. She brought produce and (very much needed) adult conversation. She hung out while I made these sweet potatoes and then we made tacos (because if given the option, I’ll always make tacos). These squash tacos are a slight variation on the ones we made that day because I’ve come to realize, delicata may me the best squash for tacos.
