We have thoroughly enjoyed summer produce this year.
But I'm not going to lie - I'm looking forward to fall and soups. Soups are my life. I think cool weather cooking is SO much easier than summer. Crock pots, more freezable meals - bring it on!
I'm eager to make that first batch of pumpkin muffins.
I recently defrosted my deep freezer, cleaned it out, and I can't wait to fill it up as we wait for BABY to arrive this December.
Summer has been good to us food-wise. I learned a lot about eating and cooking.
I learned to slow down in the kitchen....to follow real recipes, to not wing it so much, to try new flavors.
I learned a little self control - to not impulse buy, to buy higher quality.
I learned that shopping multiple stores really doesn't work for me. It's too much. So I'm back at Publix, paying a little more. And that's okay - it's the price I pay for sanity and convenience.
Of course there's Costco. I'm still figuring that store out and how it fits into my life.
I learned to label everything I put in the freezer after coming across several mystery items.
I learned a lot. I'm growing in the kitchen. Literally and figuratively!
I have miss posting here. But honestly, I've given you all I've got (up until now). There are some new recipes on my menu this week - FINALLY! I hope to return soon with some decent meals to share.
So what have you learned about food and life this summer?
