Today’s stew uses Autumn ingredients. Everyone, when you hear of Autumn ingredients, what do you think of? Modern times are when foods are plentiful and we can get any food regardless of the season. This extravagance is also saddening.
This time of year, the market I always go is selling many delicious and very inexpensive vegetables grown in my town. Indeed, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the wonderful of this. When I notice all this abundance of the Autumn, I also think of the amazing extravagance that characterizes modern times. Even in the middle of winter, I can eat papaya and pineapples. Even in the middle of summer, I can indulge in as much shave ice as I want. This makes life so easy to live, but it has become easy to lose the seasonal awareness and gratitude that plays an important part in making us correct persons. So as our school lunch menu reminds us: Food is plentiful, but the extravagance is also saddening. So let’s make an effort of eat seasonal and local foods!
That said, today’s Autumn stew was really tasty!! Yum! Yum!
