You thought I’d say cooking didn’t you? Hehe surprise!!
Yes get shopping; which will lead to cooking.
It’s now fast approaching Autumn. The colors are changing on the trees and at the Farmer’s Markets. What’s in season? Apples, pumpkins, end of summer squash, figs, plums, eggplants (aubergines) and pears to name a few. And the fresher you buy the better the taste.
The air will be chilling soon and soups will call to us along with hearty stews.
One of my favorite recipes is surprisingly simple. Ok many of my recipes are simple. I find it’s easier to be healthy if it’s simple.
