I’m still in a wee bit of disbelief that October is gone already and November is upon us.
I’ve even ordered my Christmas cards already! I’m taking part of our “Earlybird Special” at work
But – I feel like October was a good month. A good month for food, especially. I definitely got my bake and my cook on and whether I was following a recipe or completely winging it, I had some favorites.
So, if you’re looking for a little somethin-somethin to spice up your kitchen life with, maybe one of these will float your boat? It was tough – but I’ve limited myself to ten. Yes, just ten.
October Food Favs:
You wouldn’t expect to see this relatively grotesque looking dish on a list of “top ten,” but mark my words it is good. And I’m serious about my stratas.
Maybe it’s because I challenge myself to say that name five times fast while I cut it, or maybe it’s because it’s really good. Or maybe it’s a little bit of both…but this is some goood bread.
Another “comfort food.” Another vegan comfort food. With sweet potatoes. And corn…and tempeh. And holy moley, it’s good. I know I keep describing food as “good,” which really isn’t all too convincing. But work with me here – I go to art school, not smart school.
Figs. And peanut butter. Peanut butter and figs. Do I need to continue? Yes – just to reinforce the fact that it’s a magical marriage that should be in your cabinet, too.
I think I need to work on my dish titled. They’re getting a little…blunt, don’t you think? Like the title suggests…it’s pizza. With eggplant. And Hummus “cheese.” Oh, and I’ll throw in that it’s good, too, since I seem to be on a roll with that and all.
It was the month of ginger – and these muffins are definite winners. I fact, it still sort of baffles me how darn…good…these things are. They’ve only got a banana and a bit of molasses to sweeten and no oil. If I were you, I’d be skeptical of a recipe like that, too – but I promise they won’t disappoint. I’ve been having one nightly since I made them.
No explanation necessary.
Apparently, I need to take everything that’s traditional and make it…untraditional-ified. I have no complaints when they come out better than the original, though…and that’s not being vain. It’s the food that makes it good, not me.
I’d be more specific…but everything in that post is equally deserving.
I would chose the simplest thing to be number one, wouldn’t I? I’m just a sucker for a good breakfast, I guess.
Did you have a “favorite” of October, food or otherwise?
