|Ye Olde Peach Tree.|
Some readers will remember when it was flowering.
Already, the bar-b-que on our deck is covered more often than not and I'm looking up recipes that don't involve squash. In another month the garden will have broccoli and cabbage starts and the elephant eared leaves of the squash plants will be replaced with the winter crop of green parsnip sprouts.
Well, to me that sounds a bit familiar. Every morning I start from scratch with nothing on the page. For me that is writing.

That rings some bells for me as a writer/reader. I've enjoyed the classics, treasured their language and adored their characters. While I've internalized the stories of those creative geniuses of the past, what I write today is aimed at the tastes of our time.
As a cook and a writer I enjoy trying something new, testing it, tweaking it, redoing it to make it better, asking for opinions from "tasters," and then thoroughly enjoying it when I've made it the best I can.
I've come up with only a few comparison of food to writing and reading. Can you food lovers/writers/readers come up with more? I'd love more. Also here's the recipe for the Moong Dhal with fresh vegetables if you'd like to give it a try.
