I just picked up figs today, on a whim! they are so SO delicious...
Le sigh....the close of summer.At least hot on its heels are delicious roasts...and Sunday suppers...and baking cookies until you can't possibly eat any more.
Confession - totally made a fall soup today. I couldn't help myself! I'm still eating a ridiculous amount of summer vegetables and the occasional peach, though. Promise.
I'm definitely trying to do my share in this department!
Oh, I am! :)
Yeah, I'm kind of balanced between regret that I didn't eat enough summer fruit yet--who can ever eat enough summer fruit?--and happy anticipation of delicious fall goodness. :)
Sadness :( I don't want summer food to go away!
I feel the same way! Having been in Montana the last month, I've missed out on some serious fig consumption. Making up for it now. (PS: Your captcha is too hard. It keeps rejecting me.)
I've been eating white peaches for breakfast and butternut squash soup for lunch, which just goes to show that I don't want summer to end, but I'm looking forward to fall beginning. I'll have to keep my eye out for good figs at the market. Do you prefer the ones with the purple skin or green skin?
I stole a fistful of figs from a neighbors tree yesterday. Gotta love LA! GREG
I can't understand why lots of people don't like figs!!!?More for us!!!
I like black mission figs, personally--but I'll take whatever I can get! And of course fresh-picked figs are by FAR the best. We used to live near a vacant house with two giant fig trees in the years--that was a beautiful thing. Urban foraging for the win!
