I've been out and about, readers, but here are some favorite fall recipes to tide you over:
Rice-stuffed tomatoes. Great when you're tired of BLTs and Caprese salad. Yes, it can happen.
Eggplant and zucchini stacks. Towers of vegetables, sauce and cheese.
Butternut squash and mushroom salad. Butternut squash recipes on food blogs means fall is truly here.
Eggplant and pepper ragout. A sort of ratatouille.
And to wash it all down, see this piece from OnMilwaukee.com on favorite fall beers. (I prefer Lakefront Pumpkin Lager.)

"Dinner has ended long ago, but still we are sitting at the table, drinking our fifth or seventh cup of tea; and I am thinking that Russians can sit at a supper table while saying brilliant or ridiculous things longer than seems physically possible; further, this trait may explain Russia's famous susceptibility to unhealthy foreign ideas, with the post-mealtime tea-drinking providing the opportunity for contagion; and, further yet, I am wondering whether tea perhaps has been a more dangerous beverage to the Russian peace of mind, over all, than vodka."-Ian Frazier, ""Travels in Siberia--I," New Yorker, Aug. 3, 2009
