Dysfunctional Chef presents September’s Cheap n’ Easy Eats

Want to eat healthy and save money?  Then buy ‘seasonal foods.’  It makes perfect sense.  When foods are in season, they are plentiful and, therefore, cost less.  It’s the ole supply n’ demand theory.

Here follows a list of what’s in “September Season,” followed by one of Our Lady of Weight Loss’s favorite Kick Tush Recipes from her classic – All is Forgiven, Move On!

Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables for September:

Apples
Artichokes
Blackberries

Cabbage
Cauliflower
Carrots
Chile Peppers
Cucumber
Curly Kale
Figs
French Beans
Garlic
Horseradish
Leeks
Lettuce
Mushrooms
Nectarines
New Potatoes
Peaches
Pears
Plums
Pumpkins
Red Onions
Spinach
Squash
Sweet Corn
Tomatoes
And NOW for the recipe … a 5 Yum Event!

0.5 ground black pepper

1/2 c low sodium chicken stock

1/4 c Parmesan cheese + 1 tbsp cheese to sprinkle on individual dish
