It’s still pretty warm here in Oklahoma but mornings are cooler. I’m definitely getting a few Autumn vibes. And that means we’ll begin to see fall produce replace summer varieties. Our vintage menu plans will start to feature seasonal fruits and vegetables such as apples, pumpkins, pears, cabbage and sweet potatoes, for instance.
