Orange Squash Blossoms and Deep Green Chiles

The Pike Place Market brings their roving Express Markets to South Lake Union on Thursdays. It’s so cool to walk out of work and find a mini farmer’s market has appeared out of nowhere. The bright yellow fresh flowers and deep red ripe berries draw you in.

This past week I noticed the squash blossoms because their orange color reminded me that fall is coming. Fried squash blossoms stuffed with with mushrooms or cheese are easy and delicious as appetizers. Check out Heidi’s recipe for Squash Blossoms Stuffed with Sautéed Chanterelles and Buerre Blanc.
