Ah, October. Even though we don’t exactly have “seasons” here in Louisiana, this month still conjures falling leaves, pumpkins, and, of course,pumpkin spice.
Our October Favorites
Here are what recipes we’re cooking and which teas we’re sipping to get into the October spirit.
- Pumpkin Spice Bread: Save the pie for next month (Thanksgiving) and break out this delicious bread for breakfast or save for snacks.
- Spinach and Feta Pie (Spanakopita): Spinach will soon be available fresh by the bunches at the farmer’s market. Whip up this simple, freezer-friendly savory pie.
- Autumn-Spiced Brussels Sprouts: Showcasing another fall crop, this recipe couldn’t be easier. A near-instant side dish to get everyone to eat their veggies.
- Loup Garou Tea: The Loup Garou (also known as the Rougarou) is Louisiana’s version of a werewolf. Get into the spooky Halloween spirit with this infusion.
- Echinacea: Echinacea is believed to boost your immune system. Brew some straight or add it to your favorite blend to prepare yourself for flu season. (You could also try some ofAndi Lynn’s Elderberry Syrup for immunity-boosting.)
- Pumpkin Spice Tea: No offense to its latte cousins, but we prefer a cozy brew of this autumnal blend.
- Bonfire Tea: Even if it’s still hot outside, you can enjoy the aromas and comfort of a bonfire by just adding some hot water to this perfectly seasonal sip.
