What to fix, what to fix? I'm caught in a no-man's land between the heat of summer and the cold of winter, and my meals reflect our confusion.
Last night I made stuffed green peppers. Tonight I made pasta e fagiole soup. Tomorrow we're grilling salmon.
I made the green peppers because it was chilly, and we have an abundance of green peppers available now. I cut the core out of the peppers and then cut them in half lengthwise. After blanching them for five minutes, I laid them on their sides and mounded the filling over them. It seems easier to do it this way, and you get a little more of the stuffing with each bite of pepper, always a good thing.
Today was warm and clear. I should have been out weeding, but I wanted to be available to the repairman, so I worked in the kitchen, making soup. Our evening has been chilly, so the warm soup wasn't so inappropriate.
Apples are coming into the Farmer's Market. I want to do apple butter, and apple crisp and apple pie. And then there's zucchini bread, carrot cake, and pumpkin bread. I found a jar of pumpkin butter in my cabinet, today. I think I'll have it with toast in the morning.
I Love Fall!
