To celebrate the end of summer and the one month of fall that begins in mid-November, we smoked ribs one last time. At least until next year. (We grill year round, but ribs only go on sale in the summer.)
The peppers have finally finished and it was time to grind the year’s harvest. I have been drying cayenne peppers all summer in the sun and now it is time to clean up the kitchen and all the filled metal racks. After hundreds of peppers I ended up with 1 1/2 cups powdered pepper. More than enough to last two years probably.
Since it is the fall, no kitchen is complete without a big bowl of nuts to crack and eat. That is a lot of pecans.
It’s OK to be jealous.
We’re also welcoming fall produce.
To get a peek inside other bloggers’ kitchens hop on over to Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for her monthly roundup.

Those ribs look impressive ….and all that cayenne…hot shit:)
How absolutely wonderful to have pecans! We pay a fortune for those here in the UK!
They grow down here, but sadly we don’t have a tree. We pay about $6 a pound.
Looks like you’re ready for November, sadly I am not. It kinda snuck up on me. We’ve been down in Chicago over the last week and had a lovely lunch with John (from the Bartolini Kitchens) and Kristy and Mike (eat, play love our family food adventures)./
That sounds fantastic. I need to catch up on my reading!
Those pecans remind me of growing up in Texas, we had lots of pecan trees on our property. They are my favorite nut. 🙂
Lovely! Can’t believe you’ve still been having summer. Definitely jealous. 😉
