Hello!

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!

This is a great idea. AND it's a great season to try something like this!

Last week I got an acorn squash from Stacy at the Farmers' Market, I'm going to cook that up tonight with some brown sugar and other goodies.

I think of food that is just now coming into harvest. Eat it fresh now, before it gets processed/canned/jarred/pickled/whatever to keep it edible for the long winter.

Yep, I think I'll head back to the Farmers' Market on Wednesday and see what else I can get.
