The Spoils of Summer
As summer starts to wind down, I can't help but think about the impending winter and how dreadful it will be without the glorious berries and warm weather vegetables that I have grown accustomed to. All I can do now is enjoy every last morsel so that is exactly what I plan to do. This past Sunday, I collected wild raspberries along the train tracks. They were tiny, delicate and juicy...nothing like the mushy behemoths from the grocery store. I paired the delectable little berries with chocolate zucchini cupcakes that were the best use of my vegetable bounty to date. (thank you 101 Cookbooks) Maybe I can find a way to make brussel sprouts and root vegetables as delicious as the spoils of summer. Wish me luck.
