October Seasonal Fruit + Veggies

Figs Cut Open
I love Figs!  I picked up a pint of organic black figs this week and ate them all by myself, I wanted to share but Bebe and my husband both declined...I didn't push the issue.  I thought about how I'd prepare them...once home I ate them all by their little selves...no cheese, no pastry just organic.  During fig season I so desire my New Mexico home life.  At the Ranch, my Mom planted a fig tree over 35 years ago, it is so beautiful.  The fruit is so sweet and tender.  One little annoyance is that we are in constant competition with all the little birds that love figs as much as we do.
