Seasons shifted quickly in Washington this year, and summer as now transformed into early fall. Although summer is my favorite season, fall has its perks. Not the least as its harvest season and these weeks, there is a fantastic color cavalcade at the Dupont Circle Farmers’ Market.
I’m not the best of chefs, nor to I particularly enjoy cooking. But with seasonal vegetables, it’s easy. I just chop the veggies and tubers, and put in a pan with a little olive oil, and then eat with couscous or quinoa and a bit of goat cheese, or with a spoon of cottage cheese. (I’m not a vegetarian but I only eat meat once or a few times a week.) Even though the farmers’ market has a reputation of being expensive, my food budget is definitely down in this period!
