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.)
