Labor day is right around the corner [and hopefully by the time I hit post on this MY labor will follow suit!] and you crazy kids are already planning on ditching your summery frozen drinks and salads galore for hot cocoa, baking marathons, and a full-on pumpkin/apple/cranberry fest of epic proportions. I'm on to your tricks. After seeing what went down last year, I'm prepared to hold you down and make you wait just a teeny bit longer. Just long enough to make use of all the fabulous summer fruit and veggies that you'll surely be missing come winter.
I know, I know. Right now many of you are dying to get pumpkin spice wasted...
...But hold your freaking horses okay?
We have perfectly good veggies that need a bit more face-time.
With that being said, here are a few recipes that you basically need to make before you start cracking open pumpkins Gallagher-style. Though if you do... please YouTube it for my amusement. Danke.
Summer Veggie Flatbread Pizza
Pesto Veggie Dip
Seared Salmon Tacos with Honey-Lime Slaw
Confetti Pasta Salad
Vegetarian Chili Burger Lettuce Wraps
Salmon Chop Chop
That should hold you over for a little while, eh?
So before you do the fall produce face-plant I know you're all dying to partake in, remember that feeling of "Ohmygosh I would kill for a ripe slice of watermelon right now!!!!" and savor the last of summer mmkay? Class dismissed! <3
Ooh actually -- I've gotten a ton of requests for zucchini recipes lately,
so here are a few of those while we're at it! Enjoy!
What fruit or veggie will you miss most once it's out of season?
I'm going to positively weep when I can't find good cucumbers or watermelon!
