Ah, September...I don't know what the weather's like where you are, but here in New Orleans, it's pretty darn wet. But once the rains of Lee move northeast, we should get some fall-like weather, topping out around 75 degrees! Practically winter. I'm always ready to do some roasting as soon as the major summer heat subsides, and I'm jumping the gun a little here, but with good reason. We're making this scrumptious jalapeno-roasted pork from Susan Spicer's wonderful cookbook, Crescent City Cooking, so we can use the leftovers in a Labor Day/Paul's Birthday jambalaya tomorrow. Hooray!

Fact: smoothie + bread = breakfast.
I love a good smoothie. And I love me some homemade bread. I think there's some kind of law against baking during the summer in New Orleans--when I ask for parchment paper at the corner store, they look at me like I'm nuts. I guess I am a little nuts, but darn it, I'm gonna keep making bread because I love it and this is when I have the time.
Smoothie A: My classic, all-around go-to blend of vanilla yogurt, orange juice, a banana and frozen strawberries. Blip it up and drink it down.
