Autumn’s such a beautiful season: the feeling of crisp, fresh air and the warmth of a delicious latte or hot apple cider held with oversized mittens; the whirling and twirling of multi-colored falling leaves and the *crunch, crunch* beneath comfy boots; and eating freshly baked pie straight out of the oven while cozily wrapped in a blanket.

These dishes feature healthy, hearty ingredients and are easy to make. They’re all one-pot-stop recipes (aside from boiling some rice or quinoa in an additional pot).

1 whole spaghetti squash, washed
1 1/2 cups water
Prick the outside of the squash 10 to 15 times. Place in a slow cooker crock, and pour in water. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. Remove squash and leave to cool for 15 to 30 minutes.

A customer visited our Lawrenceville NJ Mobile Installation Center looking to upgrade his 2016 Jeep Wrangler’s sound system.
