inside the cooler, weeks 17 & 18

Week 17 of da veggies. We can't get enough of these fresh peppers and tomatoes. I'm trying to remember how wonderful they taste so I can remember it during the dark days of winter. We have red onions, radishes, lettuce mix, tomatoes of all sizes, peppers and the green tops of something. I'm still not good at identifying veggie tops.

And week 18! I was surprised to see raspberries in our cooler this week, I thought we were past that season but was thrilled to find out I was wrong. We also got some tasty micromix, onions, broccoli, spinach, Swiss chard and a turnip-y, carrot-type root veggie. I'll probably roast it or mash it up with butter.

I'm finally accepting the new season. I love fall, but it always takes me a little while to mourn the loss of summer and move on into sweater weather. After a fall weekend in NYC, today's Local Harvest Fest featuring the bad-ass women of From Scratch Club (I could only make it for the end, but I hear the ladies ROCKED the demos and samples!) and now a cold, dreary night curled up on the couch, I'm embracing the season. My good friend Vanessa shared a no-crust apple pie recipe with me, and now I'm sharing it over on FSC. Head over there and see how easy it can be to whip up a quick apple pie with just a few minutes of prep and no crust to roll out. Happy Autumn. (And yes, of course, I'll tell you all about the NYC Wine & Food Festival soon!)
