Time really flies, my 2nd blog-hop for My Treasured Recipes MTR #2 featuring Dough Starter Breads has already come to an end, without me realising! A big thank you to the bloggers who have lent their support to MTR #2. I realise that the theme may have been a little difficult especially for those who do not bake breads, so that probably explains the fewer entries :)
It is now early Autumn or Fall. It still feels like early summer in Belgium, with day-time temperature hovering around 20 to 21 degrees, but it can get really gusty cold at night, the temp this week is down to about 11 to 12 degrees, an indication that Autumn is already at our doorsteps.
For the next 2 months, I have decided on the theme "The Taste of Autumn" for MTR #3 simply because I need to get rid of the veggies which I have harvested or am going to harvest these few weeks. Do you have any idea what are the typical fruits and veggies which are harvested in Autumn? The first 2 that pop into my mind are pumpkin and squash! Yes I am gonna have to deal with a lot of pumpkins and squashes in the coming weeks. Help me, I am gonna turning yellow from overdose of beta-carotene! What else do we have besides pumpkin and squash? In terms of fruits, we have apple, pear, grape, cranberry, persimmon, pomegranate, fig and mandarin etc. In terms of veggies, we have a lot more. Some veggies can be seen the whole year around thanks to greenhouses, but typically the autumn veggies are broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, celery, courgette/ zucchini, potato, sweet potato, radish, turnip etc. Not to forget the the 2 famous exports of belgium, brussels sprouts and witloof (belgian endives). For more details on autumn fruits and vegetables, you may like to refer to this link.
So that's a lot of dishes and bakes that you can make with so many different types of autumn fruits and veggies. If you are interested, do join me the next 2 months in "My Treasured Recipes #3 - Taste of Autumn".
