Fall, Food, Fun

It's time for apples, scarecrows, corn rows and pumpkins. Fall is my favorite time of year. It brings apple pies, colorful leaves, decorating with pumpkins, gourds and rich, warm color schemes: the colors of the outdoors. Then come Halloween, haunted houses, bon-fires and colder nights.

Fall is also harvest time. This time of year is when fresh vegetables and fruit are abundant. We should always try to eat food in season for the freshest choices possible. Right now you can find these scrumptious goodies and more at farmers markets and corner stands throughout towns all over the country:

  • Apples
  • Corn
  • Green peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Cantaloupes
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Green beans
  • Lettuce
  • Melons
  • Various greens
  • Onions
  • Pears
  • Potatoes
  • Pumpkins
  • Radishes
  • Squash

Countless delicious recipes for main dishes, side dishes and desserts can be found online, in magazines and newspapers, and from Grandmas generations deep. Here are some of my favorites:
