Autumn always brings around the best in foodstuff. I happen to think so, at least.
October is Vegetarian Awareness Month, not to mention Halloween goodies being just around the corner.
From the World Vegetarian web site:
World Vegetarian Day (October 1st) is also the annual kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month. Make a difference by informing others about the benefits of vegetarianism. You will be helping to create a better world because vegetarian diets have proven health benefits, save animals' lives and help to preserve the Earth.
And what can I say about Halloween? It's absolutely my favorite time of year. It's not just about ghouls and goblins for me, it's the cooler weather and the changing colors of the season.
Try this deliciously-easy witchy beverage:
2 C apple cider
1-1/2 to 2 C vanilla ice cream
2 TBS honey
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Process cider, ice cream, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg in a food processor or blender until mixture is smooth. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with additional nutmeg; place a cinnamon stick in each glass. Serve at once.
Happy Cooking (and eating)!
