    Not yet, although they will be soon. Some of the bushes are starting to change, very pretty. This is my favorite time of year, now til Christmas. Being a very weird person, I love the shorter days, the cooler temperatures, the kids back in school. Less crowds everywhere. And I love Christmas. Is supposed to be in the 40's tonight!

    Thanks for the ideas and how to on the eggplant. I am going to try roasting some first and then will try dehydrating some. I also like the sound of fritters!! Will have to try that too. And we are having temps in the late 30's and 40's now at night - I am LOVING it. I too love the shorter days and we always wait until everyone has gone back to school before going camping and fishing etc. We get all our favorite haunts to ourselves then Christmas is a lovely time and it is such fun preparing for the kids surprises too. Both our kids were born in December so it is a big month for us ... Not sure how much fall colour we will have this year as it has been so very dry. Some of the trees have lost their leaves just from the drought ... guess we'll see. Hope you have stunning colours there - you'll have to share a picture or two once they really get going!

    Yum, eggplant.

    Is the afore-mentioned surgeon unmarried?

    I get what you're saying about baggy. It feels good to feel skinny in baggy clothes.

    Yeah, it's a very different feeling - "My butt is so big I have to buy a giant size so it won't bind and cup and look gross." Contrast with "These pants that are a size too large artfully drape across my size 8 a@@."

    All the eggplant is gone, also the brussels sprouts. Very big veg day. Low on protein, though. Might buy some more eggplant, I am in an eggplant mood. Feel like mixing in some garlic and scooping it up with really crisp bacon.

    Surgeon is married AND much too young.

    I have sinned mightily. Confession is good for the soul. The food co-op had a piece of gluten-free chocolate cake that seemed to actually be looking at me...it wanted to be eaten. Tummy is a bit upset but not bad. I haven't eaten anything like that for ages and ages. Lots of sugar, for one thing. Won't make a habit of it, but damn, it was good!

    Yum: chocolate cake and good looking men.
    You're having quite the good life these last days of summer.

    Also made a decision today. Given this unrelenting allergy thing I have going on that does not respond to any medication I have taken so far (Allegra, Claritin, Benadryl) I purchased some raw goat milk and raw milk kefir. Last year I was consuming these products on a daily basis and didn't have any allergies at all. Will be an interesting experiment. I think it goes without saying that these goats and cows are pastured quite close to me - within 25 miles.

    Interesting thought about the raw goat milk and kefir. You'll have to let us know if it helps. I seem to be having allergy symptoms this week, for the first time since going primal 2 1/2 years ago. Wish I could find raw milk, but unfortunately, the law has all the farmers intimidated and it is pretty much impossible to find.

    Tee hee, love the baggy clothes bit Siobhan... I too will be interested in how you respond to the raw goat milk and kefir. Sorry you are dealing with allergies! A very irritating ailment indeed. We drink raw cow's milk from close by (about 5 miles away) and I have not had much allergy stuff for a while now. Hadn't thought much about that. Here's hoping you benefit from the inclusion of real dairy. Greensprout, so sorry you are also being impacted by the STUPID laws about raw milk! So frustrating...

    The laws are ridiculous, I agree, and changing them is an uphill battle. When I lived in Massachusetts, I wanted to stand in the street and yell, "PEOPLE! It is not 100 years ago! It is today! We don't need to be afraid of raw milk!" Funny how millions of pounds of conventionally produced food makes people sick and gets recalled and no one flinches, but mention raw milk and you'd think you were talking about injecting children with the plague.

    I drank a cup last night, will continue to do so. The problem is, of course, that this sort of thing doesn't work like a pill one buys at the pharmacy (not that those are working) and I wish I had been eating raw dairy all summer. Alas, I have not, it might be too late for this allergy season.
