Simply In Season - A Cookbook Challenge

The other day I watched the movie Julie & Julia and I was inspired to cook through an entire cookbook. I wasn't quite ready to search for bizzare ingredients to do the Julia Child cookbook, so some people suggested Simply In Season. It is actually a MCC cookbook, and you cook and bake with veggies and fruits that are in season. This means they taste better and they are more affordable. 

This is my second week and we are enjoying it a lot. Most of the recipes have been good. I have enjoyed trying new things. 

At the beginning of the week I make a menu, shop for all the ingredients. This has made making suppers WAY easier and more fun. I was going to list all the things we have tried, but I meant to make this post a week ago and now it is too many recipes to name off hand. I will try to post more about it everyday. 

Today I made Sweet Potato soup which was VERY good. Suprising for me because I can only handle so much sweet potato at a time. I also made the Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls which were ok, and Secret Chocolate Cake. The 'secret" is that these is beets in it, which isn't all that secret to my taste buds. I am not too crazy about it, it tastes too earthy for me!
