The nice crisp fall days and beautiful colors everywhere have come to an end here in Washington D. C. And now it’s on to winter dreariness. That’s the only way to get to Spring though so we’ll chug through the dark mornings, the icy roads the holiday nightmare of crowds and retailers. I’ll be dreaming of Spring and flowers and green for now, not presents and ‘more stuff’……
I still have my kitchen all winter though. And that is definitely enjoyable.
We started off October with a bang, and a big slice of Chocolate Cherry Zucchini Cake:
Then there was some spreadable love…or Rosemary Grape Jam. All gone now…time to make more!
After the jam, things got a little chillier outside and I cooked up a pot of ‘Cheezy’ Broccoli Squash Soup. So good!
After my soup, I tried my hand at homemade croissants. ‘Frumpy’ Pumpkin Spice Croissants to be exact.
I teamed up my croissants with a delicious fresh Asian Style Cucumber Zucchini Salad. Tangy heaven!
A stop at a local Orchard brought me a pot full of Garlic Mashed Cauliflower to enjoy, without a drop of diary…
Next there was a spooky book review of Natalie Slater’s ‘Bake and Destroy‘ with some tasty BBQ on a bun.
Another new jam idea teamed up with some delicious Basil Biscuits and Apple Pie Jam. Oh yeah!
I met up with Ann Oliverio to get some details on next month’s Virtual Vegan Potluck event.
I spoiled myself with a big bowl of Pumpkin Spice Latte Ice Cream after that.
Last up in October, I shared a detox dream Baby Kale Creamy Coconut Detox Smoothie….
What a month. November brings lots more yumminess and healthy Holiday ideas. And of course, The Potluck on November 16th.
