This month's Is My Blog Burning? is being hosted by foodgoat. I had hoped to participate in the last session but various things prevented me from getting to it in a timely fashion. This time I was determined, but initially found myself stumped by the theme, which was simply - "orange" (the color, not specifically the fruit). After coming up with an preliminary list of foods that met that requirement, I set out to research a menu. Last night, three courses were served (recipes included elsewhere on this blog -- see links below). I had a great deal of fun and felt this theme really stretched my creativity. I got to try out dishes with three different orange-focused ingredients, including carrot, the ubiquitous orange itself, and cantaloupe. A very bright repast.
