And we're not ready.
We've been munching sweet corn like it's going out of business (oh wait, it sort of is...), canning tomatoes and okra, and eating at least two peaches or nectarines each day. It has made for blissful August eating.
So we're going to spend the next few weeks gobbling up as much summer as we can.
The change in seasons is starting to be evident on the covers of food magazines.
Below, you'll see 11 images from August and September covers. There's still some summeriness happening, but there's also pasta, pizza and pesto on roast chicken.
Along with this gallery, we're offering a giveaway! And we've really excited about this one. We use a Microplane nearly every day in the kitchen, usually to grate cheese, zest a lemon, or (when we're feeling a bit lazy) mince some garlic. We love it. So when we got a press release from the Microplane company announcing new, bright colors, we immediately wanted to give some away to Bitten Word readers.
Here's how to enter.
So which is your favorite?
