“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall”F. Scott Fitzgerald
September bounty is here! Gardens are overflowing, we are in the perfect shoulder season between peaches and apples. Do you need to choose? Absolutely not, fill your counter with both!
This month's “What to Cook” not only focuses on the foods that are at their peak freshness, but also the cooking methods that we tend to lean into as the season shifts to fall.
Back to school, busier work commitments, moving toward the holidays. The fall always heralds in a season of busyness, but that doesn’t mean we have to abandon home-cooked food!
This month get ready for easy sheet pan meals, magical instant pot meals, meal prep lunches, supportive breakfasts to start the day, and the perfect afternoon snack ideas for hungry kiddos or to cure that 3 pm energy slump
WHAT'S IN SEASON IN SEPTEMBER?
This will depend on the region of the world you live in, naturally. Here in the northeastern United States, we are hitting the peak, prime-time growing season. The markets are bursting, my garden is bursting, and the earth is providing.
Fill your market bags with these seasonal goodies:
- Bell Peppers
- Summer Squash
- Swiss Chard
- Kohl Rabi
- Collard Greens
- Green Beans
I hope you LOVE these healthy early fall recipes.
