September creates a Change of Seasons and a Change of Tastes
As seasons change, so do our tastes. Ice cream, watermelon, picnics and beach parties give way to winter squash, crock-pot meals and school lunches. Although 98% of school districts in the U.S. now offer fresh fruits and vegetables at lunch (according to a national survey of school food-service directors), school lunches are still a challenge for many mothers and fathers. School food is getting better thanks, in part, to the work of culinary campaigners like California's Alice Waters and British chef Jamie Oliver. We have 10 recipes (on the left), using various winter squashes, that your children will hopefully enjoy in their school lunches and you are sure to like for healthy family meals.
Enjoy the beginning of fall and be sure and check out the coupon from flowerpetal.com at the very bottom of this eNewsletter.
All the best in food, wine, and travel.

The Pocket Purifier, by Purely Products, is revolutionizing the way America cleans by providing a simple and effective way to eliminate germs and bacteria from any surface in seconds. Think cleaning the handle of your grocery store shopping cart or sanitizing your cutting board after slicing raw meat. The Pocket Purifier is easy to use and lightweight so you can take it anywhere. Powered by 4 AA batteries, the Pocket Purifier is operated by holding the device about one inch above the surface you want to clean for 10-15 seconds. A 4-watt germicidal ultraviolet light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens destroying their ability to multiply and sanitizes the item you are trying to cleanse.
