#Vegetarian #Food Is So Pretty!

I'm telling you what: I like pretty food. I don't always make pretty food, but I like it when it comes my way.

Meat, you know, is always kind of ... brown. Ish. But vegetables come in so many bright colors, it's a pleasure just to look at them. Here's a plate we had the other night.
As Charlie's Aunt Ora Mae used to say, "Now ain't that pretty?" That's broccoli salad (broccoli, walnuts, raisins, and mayonnaise), roast beets, and butternut squash.

Summer is over, and the farmers' markets are closing. Soon, we'll be eating out of cans and the freezer and the grocery.


No wonder bears hibernate.
