Try to remember the kind of September, when life was slow and oh, so mellow.....
My problem is I can't remember this kind of September, because it's never, ever been mellow for me. It's when the year kicks back into high gear. There's been no time for cooking or blogging....it's all football practice and marching band and scouts and homework. Evidentially that's true for everyone, because we had a very small turnout this month.
Tricia was very much mustard inspired....she tried out many recipes but the spicy corn with sesame seeds and tomatoes was her favorite and I wish corn season would last a little longer so I could try it.

Spicy horseradish mustard will deliver some warmth on a cold day
My old standby - deviled eggs. They're great for potlucks....everyone loves them.
To catch us back up, I am going to announce the October challenge right now....it's mace. Mace is a spice made from the waxy red covering which covers nutmeg seeds. The flavor is similar to that of nutmeg, with a hint of pepper and a more subtle note. It has a wide range of uses from desserts to roast meats. Now that we're settled in to fall, I look forward to your posts from October 23-30. Please help me by putting "Spice Rack Challenge: Mace" in your subject line.
