Firsts and Lasts

Well, it’s the last day of Vegan Mofo, it’s the last night of October, and sadly, not the first night it’s been below freezing here.  (In the 20’s F, below 0 C)  The juxtaposition can be seen here with the zucchini bread made from the last of our fresh zucchini, next to the first squash of the fall cooking season. 

It has turned into hot food season, preferably with soup for dinner!  Here we made some soup with garden beets, onions, cabbage, carrots and tomatoes, with some non-garden potatoes.  The muffins were made with apples from the tree in our yard.  I loved the soup but the rest of the family decided tomatoes didn’t belong in there with the beets.

The cold weather makes the recently-returned K hanker for Southern Asia.  Last night she made us a Thai dessert involving coconut milk, bananas, sugar and a pinch of salt.  A hot bowl of that stuff was just the antidote to the cold night…. but a warm day on the beach would have been even better!
