A little orange for the first hint of fall …

Today is the official first day of fall and it calls out to prepare a dish with fall colors.  This dish was inspired by our neighbors who raised healthy basil plants this summer, and had dried the bounty in a dehydrator. They graciously shared a baggie with me and that was the inspiration for this dish: Basil Carrots.
