The Seasonal Kitchen

I buy all of our produce locally (at the farmer's market) which forces one to eat seasonally. A friend visited recently and commented on the beautiful fall "display" in my kitchen.

I was thinking, um, we actually eat all this - from the pumpkins and seeds, to the end of fall's tomatoes to the persmissons I'm hoping ripen soon. Oh, that long thing on the top that looks like a banana squash is actually a Candy Roaster and makes the absolute best soup ever. I bought it from a delightful woman named Jill who no longer comes to our farmer's market. :( At least I loaded up when I last saw her and thank goodness that pumpkins and other winter squash last for months when stored properly (which means I need to move my "display" into a cool, dark spot where the squash are not touching each other).

Happy fall!

I have a similar "display" in my house. I LOVE pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin scones, you get the picture. And so I have lots of nice pie pumpkins scattered about the house. They're very decorative and will all bake up nicely. Kind of like living in a gingerbread house!
