Herbed Goat Cheese Straws

October is my favorite month, it’s the beginning of the holiday season, the threshold to gathering, laughing, worrying less about your diet. It’s the start of colder nights, warmer beds that beg you to hit the snooze button a few more times. My breath fogs my glasses when I got o check the mail. Milo wears sweaters now, he sleeps motionlessly on my pillow next to me. We daydream of farming, fireplaces, and flea markets. This is my first year home to see the leaves turn, to greet her like an old friend.   I’m keeping recipes like the one below in my back pocket to have ready when family visits. We won’t have much time to prep a big meal; my sister gives birth to her first child on Monday and I know all of my time will be spent with her these next few weeks.
