When is summer over? About 90% of the leaves have fallen from our trees. It’s time to stop kidding ourselves and face facts: it is not going to be 80° outside for a long, long time. Given the price of heating oil, it is never going to be 80° inside!
So we’ve conceded to the seasons and begun doing the fall things. We are actively stacking firewood on the deck. We are passively watching the wind blow the leaves away. We consider very un-Green to rake and burn. Besides with three acres, do you know how many leaves there are?
We have put away summer clothes and dug out the winter stuff.
We have put away summer cookbooks and dug out the winter stuff. And that brings us to old friends and cookbook treasures.
We’ve blogged a few times from Eat Feed Autumn Winter by Anne Bramley:
- Ancho Chili Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Chorizo
- Indian Spiced Cauliflower
- Wild Rice Pilaf with Cherries and Pecans.
You can find these recipes by using the search box on this blog. We’re going back to this book for the fall and will post even more recipes.
You might want to treat yourself and look for a copy of Eat Feed Autumn Winter at your local bookstore or online. It’s a book worthy of being on your shelves.
