Less Noise, More Green: Beauty That Moves Blog Hop

Beauty That Moves Blog Hop



Today I am participating in the Beauty That Moves Blog Hop, which celebrates the week's activity in the kitchen and the food created there.














As I continue to work against the clock, anticipating the first frosts of the season, my kitchen this week was a whirl wind of feverish harvesting and preserving. Sunflower and squash seeds were seasoned and roasted and the first sweet potatoes of the season were eaten. I am still using up the last of the summer squash and peppers, but our meals have become committed to the new season and I am thrilled to have a new set of ingredients to work with. Winter squashes, cabbages, apples and root vegetables are all welcome additions to the table. My kitchen smells like fall and it is heaven.

For a family gathering, I made my Salt Caramel Brownies, which are requested (demanded would be more accurate) and last about two seconds once they are unwrapped.

Pop over to Heather's to see what everyone else has been up to!

    1. Thank you so much for visiting me! We had lots of rain today so I took a break from gardening/preserving and did some housework instead. On the agenda tomorrow is making groundnut stew, which is an African dish made with cabbage, sweet potatoes and peanut butter. I serve it with coconut and bananas. It is delicious! It freezes beautifully, so I'll be stocking the freezer.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Amanda! I love sage in a sausage stew this time of year. Hope you like the brownies as much as my family does.
