Pictures from Late Summer

It is hard to believe that over two months have passed since I’ve posted.  I have not had time to post here or read so many of my favorite food blogs, and I’m hoping to change that soon.  In the meantime, we are still here, doing well, and missing you all.  Here are a few pics from late summer.  The produce at our favorite farm was much weaker than last year with the awful weather, but we did enjoy some goodies while the season lasted.

Now we’re entering my favorite time of year when I get back to braises and gratins. Oh wait, that’s right, I do that all year round!  I recently made another version of peasant bean stew with leftover braised pork shoulder, andouille sausage, onions, carrots, parsley, and vallarta beans — it was fabulous.

these orange cherry tomatoes were the star of the season; I found the confetti peppers very bright and pretty, but tasteless compared to their larger cousins
