What’s in season (2023) isn’t just about pies it’s also about the vegetables you eat and how creative you can get about cooking them.
Chestnuts are Holiday season favorite. I can’t seem to get into them, I do know many people like them for multiple purposes.. Add them to your soups, salad, entrees and desserts. Or, roasting by the fire. Apparently if you have dried them and ground into a flour, they are great for an alternative for those with celiac or they are gluten free, those with a wheat allergy.
Chestnuts grow inside spiny burrs on the trees, when the leather covers are opened up there could be up to 3 nuts inside. Don’t get water chestnut confused with nut chestnuts. Not the same.
Have you ever had bread pudding or french toast made into a loaf pan? I recently had it, thought it was delicious.. Try this recipe out, it’s a winter squash bread pudding.
This recipe comes from Cher Jen Franco of Food shift, a non profit in Oakland.
4 cups of day old bread cubed
3 cups cubed roasted winter squash
2 cups of milk (any variety)
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or another extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Oil the 8 x 8 dish or loaf pan
Combine the bread and squash cubes together in the banking dish. Lightly beat the eggs, whisk in milk, sugar, and flavorings. Pour over the bread and squash, let sit for 30 minutes. Bye for 35-45 minutes until golden brown and the liquid has set.
This recipe sounds like a dressing..
What’s in Season? Well, it’s year of the rabbit.
2023 is a year of the Water Rabbit, starting from January 22nd, 2023 (Chinese New Year), and ending on February 9th, 2024 (Chinese New Year’s Eve). The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture. 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.
Male Rabbits are characterized by always treating people politely, with a gentle smile that makes people feel that they are credible and sincere. When encountering tough difficulties, they are never discouraged but instead remain persistent in their endeavors to find solutions. This means they eventually achieve enviable success.
Female Rabbits are personified as follows: apart from having a pretty and demure appearance, they have a pure heart.

Apples and other fruits and vegetables make great Crumbles.. here’s an apple crumble I made not that long ago, any kind of heart fruit like pears, peaches or mix and match make great combo’s.
A group of volunteers I made them an apple crumble just to show my appreciation. I asked a couple of the guys to meet me outside. Two came out, I don’t know what they were expecting.. two of the tallest guys came out of the building. I gave them this crumble to share with all the volunteers. You can guess what happened.
The two guys said, they shared it with the other guys. (not everyone got a slice, if you know what I mean). Gordon said it was awesome!
That’s what happens when you give the crumbles away.. they just disappear.
Have fun with your food! What’s in season (2023) will continue until next time..
