October foods [Oct. 9th, 2006|02:19 pm]
You, too, can be a Granola Woman

I'm trying to reconnect with the cycle of the seasons by eating seasonal foods. I'm not going to pretend that I'm only going to eat foods that are in season or anything like that, but I'm going to plan my meals around the season I'm in. I'm hoping this will help me feel more connected to the cycle of the earth, as well as make food prep fun.

So, I'm wondering...what foods or meals say "October" to you? They can be healthy or unhealthy; ingredients or meals.

For example, I think of apples and sage and squash when I think October, but I also think Chili, roasted sage chicken, candy corn, and apple pie.

I'd love to know what foods you associate with October! Thanks!

Funny you should mention it... we had roasted sage chicken with butternut squash and broccoli last night. It was wonderful!

Other things I associate with this time of year: Chicken soup; root vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, beets and potatoes; lentils and beans; apples, apples, apples and pears; all varieties of winter squash, including pumpkin. :-)

Thanks! I've never had parsnips. I'll have to try them out. I love beets, too. :D
