Oh Karlynn! You just called me OUT! I DO sometimes want to eat out of season. I do I do I do. I don't do it often but I do want to. Especially when I see gorgeous blackberries in a supple, moist little muffin like these ones. They look darn tootin good lady!!

Karlynn ........ Everything about this post has me giddy. Bourbon?
Check. Cherries? Check. Raspberries? Check. Lemonade? Check. Except
maybe the sadness that Summer is going going gone. I ain't gonna lie - I
don't love the hot weather. I know what you mean about Alberta (I grew
up in Strathmore) but the heat just kills me. I'm much more a Fall kinda
girl - especially since I've canned the crap outta cherries this year
so I can make these bad boys (aka cherry raspberry bourbon lemonades)
all Winter long. Bourbonator solidarity girl!

Hi Amanda! I love this dish - it's so beautiful. so seasonal. so elegantly rustic. I love love love it! I tried to find a way to contact you but don't see one so I'm commenting here. I hope you don't mind, but I'd love to feature your dish in my newsletter this week. Of course, I'll link back to you. Just thought I'd ask before hand. Thanks so much!

very true and interesting! i typically avoid anything with HFCS with fanatical resolution. anything hydrogenated will actually bind to your cells too and cause them to change their biological composition. um, cancer much? ack!
thanks for sharing with us at the wednesday fresh foods link up. i look forward to seeing what other seasonal & real/whole food posts you have for us next week!! xo, kristy

you HAVE to read Michael Pollan. That is a fantastic book. I also recommend "Bottomfeeder" by Taras Grescoe.

i don't get the vaccine either. it's been my experience that everyone i know who gets the shot, gets the flu! I get colds, etc but rarely the flu so why would i want to change that? haha
also, i view the vaccine like i view lotion and lipgloss (though i do use those). if you regularly use lotion and lipgloss your body stops producing its own oils, moisturizers, etc... because it doesn't have to. i feel the same way about the flu and our immune systems. if you take away its ability to fend off the common flu, you become dependent on artificial medical interventions. what happens when those aren't available anymore?
thank you for sharing with us at the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up! i look forward to seeing you again this week with more seasonal & fresh/real food blog posts :) xo, kristy

i am also not much of a fan of green peppers. they make me angry, actually. but other peppers are cool :) and i love anything with quinoa. and sausage. i can imagine this would be a very good dish to use up anything that showed up in a fall/winter CSA box too - very versatile!
thank you for sharing with us at the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up! I hope to see you again with week with more seasonal & fresh/whole food posts :) xo, kristy

i adore the simplicity of this dish. and lentils are always a good idea :) i've never sprouted anything but have wanted to for a while now.
thank you for sharing your post with us at the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up! I hope we'll see you again this week with more amazing seasonal & real food posts. xo, kristy.

i love tomatoes no matter how many i eat! so we'll have to agree to disagree there ;)
that being said, i really wanted to make my own salsa this year. but due to a move across the country, it didn't happen. I did manage to can a year's worth of bourbon soaked cherries though. priorities, right?
thanks for sharing with us at the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link-up! I hope to see you again this week with more seasonal & whole/real food posts! xo, kristy.
