September has a way of keeping us all on our toes. Mornings can be chilly, afternoons can be hot and humid, and evenings - well, that’s anyone’s guess! Before our crock pots take up permanent residence on our counters for what we call “Slow Cooker Season” (that’s November thru March in our neck o’ the woods), there’s at least a good month when dinner cravings can swing from cold, crisp salads to steamy, satisfying stews in a matter of days. And for that reason, we’re keen on keeping a light sweater and a few of our favorite recipes from @lilsipper close by. Get to know this cool and refreshing Bone Broth Shrimp Ceviche, crowd-pleasing "Texas Toast", and what we consider the culinary equivalent of your mother saying “Put on a sweater!”: the deeply comforting Bone Broth Elixir.
We love you, September. Keep changin’.
