The most comments ever received on this blog happened after I posted a batch of Japanese summer food pictures. I don't know why but it struck a chord big time for some people. So I figured I'd put up a few more pics to celebrate this next season.
I've got to be honest & say my blogging time has been curtailed sharply since school started and any of you home schooling moms know what that means. I'm afraid I may not be able to get many posts up. Any requests for recipes would be welcome. I'm actually hoping to get some Christmas posts prepared before the season as I generally become inundated with Turkey/eggnog/stuffing how to phone calls at all hours of the day. Stay ahead of the game, mate! ........but till then the best I can do is a few autumn pics to brighten your cool autumn day. Nashi (when my Grandpa comes to visit us from the States he always buys nashi in abundance, his favorite fruit)
Yaki-imo. Did you know that this was first sold as an aphrodisiac for older ladies? Woo-hoo!!
I loooove kaki still sweet but with a little crunch left!
Shimeji is one of my favorite mushrooms.
Oooooh, these babies are so luscious & sweet. Peel off or on!
Pumpkin pie here we come!
Kuri. Greatest memories of my dad coming home with a paper bag of roasted chestnut for us girls to crack open.
In Japan autumn is the season of abundance in the foodie world. All the best of the fruits & vegetables & fish. It is really THE season of food. It's true! The other night when I made simmered pumpkin with spices like: ginger, nutmeg, cloves & cinnamon, I swear I could almost smell a flaky buttery pie crust by association. Ti's the season for cobblers, pies & baked goodies!! What's your favorite autumn food?
