Introducing October: ‘Budget’

(Photo by Brian Godfrey)

Hello Everyone!

And Happy October to you.  Yes, that’s right, OCTOBER!  We’re all wondering where September went, as well.  Everyone on the Elevenses team has been preparing and bracing ourselves for the huge changes that apparently swallowed September whole, but we are back in the blogging saddle once again.  The exciting part (albeit heartbreaking, as well) is that half of our team will be blogging from across the pond.  Jacqui and Nat have settled beautifully into life in Brighton, England!  We miss them terribly, but exploring the world of Culinaria is so much sweeter as our world grows and presents us with new morsels to cook, taste, and share.

And now for the introduction of our October topic: Budget!  Honestly, what else would be so fitting after a month that sees so many of us pay for a seemingly endless list of expenses—children’s school supplies, tuition, moves, and transitions which indeed burn a hole in our collective wallets? Hence our need to infuse the month of October with money-conscious tips and recipes that have worked in our kitchen over the years. Allergen-free cooking can most certainly hit a person square in the wallet.  Gone are the days where I could stretch a dollar from feeding the family dishes that would grow with the addition of grains and pastas.  Then again, how many of us gluten and grain-free home cooks have discovered amazingly effective and tasty ways to cook from our pantry, substituting ingredients with wonderful results and single handedly creating abundance from disparity?  We all have. (Take a moment to pat yourself on the back, dear reader, you know you deserve it!)

With that thought in mind, stay tuned with us this month as we share the ways that have been most helpful for our family in shopping and cooking the way that nurtures us most fully, while staying in tune with the rhythm of the seasons, as well as our body’s need for increased warmth and sustenance as the days grow shorter and cooler.  Get excited, people!

It’s a delicious time of year and we’re eager to share the bounty with you!
