September's Recipe Challenge

Sunday, August 23, 2009
As we all know, the Beef Bourguignon was both a huge success and, at least for my innards, a terrible failure. However, it filled my desire to try one new recipe each month. I'm now on the hunt for September's recipe. Unfortunately, I'm far too wary of trying another French recipe from my newly acquired cookbook so soon...at least until I speak to the doctor and we get everything sorted. This could be as soon as tomorrow or months from now depending on what he thinks is wrong and what it is, if anything, he decides to do about it.

September doesn't have any big holidays here in Canada except Labour Day but that doesn't really have any "special meals" or traditional dishes associated with it so I've got no ideas at the moment. October? No problem. Rather than your standard pumpkin pie, I'm going to make this pumpkin cake recipe (minus the pecans, 'natch) to feed the masses at Thanksgiving and, if it's a success, again for our workplace Halloween potluck feast.

And so I turn to all of you once again for suggestions on something to "create" during the month of September. I'd prefer not to make a dessert as I may be making two of them the following month. In case anyone's forgotten, I don't do fish/seafood and I detest fungi and olives. Wine and other alcoholic ingredients are out of the question at the moment as well. If you have any ideas, please leave me a comment with a link to a recipe (or you can e-mail it to me).

How about tackling lasagne? You can even do a veggie version if you prefer.

So much for my olive-glazed mussel and fish mushroom stew recipe...

When I was a kid, I hated olives. My mom used to say, eat seven of them and you'll love them forever. It turns out she's right.

How about a jambalaya? Although they are often made with sausage and shrimp or crawfish, you can use just sausage or chicken or whatever you like.

I love olives in every variety! In fact, had to put them in potato salad to get kids to eat the potato salad and thereby came across a new family recipe tradition. Mufalleta is one of our favorites

That, notwithstanding, I'll go through my treasure trove and see what I can come up with for a recipe.

I saved the pumpkin cake recipe to make for Thanksgiving. It'll be perfect. Thanks!

Have been cooking like a maniac here. One of my favorites is cauliflower soup. Everyone says, ick, and tastes it and become converts. I love it because its so good and has almost zero calories - let me know if that strikes your fancy.

I love olives!!! I could eat them all day long. And mushrooms of all kinds I also like very much (never tried the magic variety though).

How about trying out cannelloni ripieni?
Something like this, but the stuffing can be anything! Not necessarily meat

Is it still corn on the cob season in September? You could make a meal of that!
