The fall is breezing in and soon summer will be a distant memory….No need to fret (or freeze)! There are many exciting fall activities that can be enjoyed outdoors- it will just take one more layer of clothingJ
Since we have discovered the fun of cooking, what better way to do so than with fresh ingredients that you can find at your local farmer’s market!
Most farmers’ markets are usually open until the end of October so there is still plenty of time to make a trip and get busy planning a fall feast! Among the produce you’ll find in season this time of year include: Apples, Squash, Garlic, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Swiss Chard, Pumpkin, Pears, Mushrooms, Parsnips, Ginger, Cauliflower and Figs.
You can throw together a simple sauté of garlic, squash, swiss chard, and mushrooms tossed with a little olive oil and salt…. serve it with a grilled chicken breast and you’ve got a tasty and healthy fall meal! For the more experienced- try your hand at a basic apple pie recipe, you’ll be sure to have all the neighbors lining up at your door! For more ideas check out our FK DVD!
