It's time for another round of the very cool monthly happening called "In My Kitchen" run by Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.
So here we go....
This Month in my Kitchen...
October was a bit wonky weather wise, perfect weather to get sick. One day it was 40F, the next it was pushing 80F! But as always the redeeming feature...in a word Halloween! This year Kishore decorated his desk at work for a competition, so I got to work making cheesecloth ghosts and he worked on spiderwebs. Overall we had a lot of fun getting ready for Halloween! :)
We had our final harvest for the year: Eggplants, Peppers, and lots of Tomatillos.
Picked up this beautiful set of hand carved wooden serving utensils at a flea market. I love the fact that the artist left the nubs of branches on the handles, it adds character.
Quickly whipped up this cheese plate after an afternoon visit to the local farmers market.
Given our love for Popcorn, we bought some Organic Popcorn grown by Farmer Steve in cooperation with Rutgers. It is being sold online and ships internationally if you are interested the link is here: Amwell Valley Organic Grains.
We carved 'Día de los Muertos' style pumpkins for our front steps. They represent the King and Queen of Mitlan, the Aztec Underworld, God and Goddess of the Dead. The top pumpkin is Queen Mictecacihuatl, while the lower pumpkin is King Mictlantecuhtli.
Made Baked Spiced Pumpkin Donuts
I'd also like to remind everyone of the new monthly linkup called "Food 'n Film"! November's linkup will be posted and open from the 3rd to the 30th. Hope you join up! :)
