Fall is in the Air

Every fall season, you make a list of recipes you are destined to incorporate into your celebrations. These recipes were past down from generation to generation. But never before would you speculate the thought of a pure vegetable (Vegan????) recipe. You've thought about it of course, but never took the idea seriously. You trying Vegan recipes??? Never!!!

But there you are, sitting in front of your laptop or Ipad, searching through Google's records, for any and all new and fun vegetable recipes to incorporate into this fall seasons' fun dinner parties. You're thinking of ways to impress your co-workers, your partner's co-workers, your in-laws, the kids, pretty much everyone you enters your home.

Now, before you head off to the grocery store and spend beyond your budget, let's first sit and contemplate on your theme this fall season. Which vegetables do you and your family most enjoy eating? Do you guys really even like vegetables? And if you were to enjoy these vegetable meal choices, would you incorporate them past the fall season?

These are the things to think about prior to making a single purchase or even heading to the grocery store. Once you've thought about these questions, we can move forward with your new endeavor.

Vegetables....Are They for Everyone?

The thought of vegetable recipes has not only been something that's been on your mind, but you've even taken the action towards the thought. Many times, you've gone to Pinterest, created vegetable recipe boards, and have even gotten a few followers. But the last action needed to be taken was to start your own small garden. And checkmate- you started that last summer. A small little indoor garden in your kitchen which you use to grow herbs like thyme, oregano, basil, and rosemary.

This little herb garden has created a great harvest which you've been using to season your meals and incorporate into your recipes. However, you find yourself thinking whether this upcoming spring season could be the best time to tap into your green thumb and grow some vegetables. You've been so successful with the herbs, why not add some vegetables to the harvest? Of course nothing difficult to grow, maybe some bell peppers, tomatoes, and chili peppers. You know, just start small.

But as quick as the thought has come into your mind, fear and doubt take over and you wonder: Are vegetables really for everyone? Can you grow and harvest vegetables in your home? Do you need a class to be successful at this seasonal harvest attempt? Are you pushing the line too far?

The answer to those questions are, yes vegetables are for everyone, yes you can grow and harvest vegetables from your home, no there is no class needed, and no there is absolutely no line to push. You should be proud of yourself, you are trying something new.
