The heat of August transitioned to the rain of September here in the DC area, perhaps signalling to us all about the impending transition from summer to fall. While the inclement weather may have meant a few less chances to eat outside, it did nothing to deter one's appetite; in fact, it started another transition...towards the heartier foods of the cooler and colder months ahead.

Inspired by my periodic reading of Waverly Root's The Food of France, I decided to make my own pot au feu with a variety of items from my fridge and garden.

Why yes, it was National Pepperoni Pizza Day in September. How did you guess?
