Fall is nigh, there is a breath of fall in the air….do you feel it…smell it….see it. Have you had any taste of fall yet??
oh my, doesn’t that drawing in the Tasha Tudor book “Around the Year” make you want to whip up a pot of soup, or a homemade apple pie!!
What I love about fall, is soups made with all the tasty vegetables, oh, the beautiful potatoes ~ red ~ golden ~ purple ~ white and all the lovely greens ~ rainbow chard, yummy mustard and turnip greens, the colorful tomatoes! The truth is I love soup all through the year. Do you? What is your favorite homemade soup?
I have been enjoying summer and falls bounty, not from my own garden ~ but through the hard work of others. Oh, thank you so much for the tasty vegetables, goat and sheep milk cheese. And look at those lovely blueberries. Have you ever raked for blueberries, it will give you a new appreciation for them, making them taste even better.
I tried something new this year, called dragon beans, they reminded me of broad beans. I stewed them with different colored tomatoes, carrots and some patty pan squash. The fresh vegetables had such wonderful flavor we didn’t think it need any other seasoning except the onion flakes, salt and pepper
mmmm….doesn’t that watermelon look good??? It was!! We bought one of the dark green melons, they had a pink flesh and seeds ~ we ate the whole thing!
This is what I had for my birthday dessert . Chocolate blueberry goat cheesecake.
So have you been harvesting the bounty from your garden??? Do you have a locale farmers market and road side stands where you can buy tasty fruits and veg ~ of someone else’s labor?? Does your cooking change as fall is approaching? I’m ready for apples ~ apple sauce, warmed with cinnamon and raisins in it, apple crisp, and fresh apple cider!
