Last week I did a ravioli-making class at La Bella Italia in Petone, and we filled them with concoctions of pumpkin and spinach. Totally didn't occur to me that these ingredients were technically about to go out of season. More on this class later though, once I actually get around to eating said ravioli, which were made to be frozen.

I've been to two Farmer's Markets in the past few weeks and have had zero idea what veggies to buy. Help, I'm seasonally challenged!! It doesn't help that I'm from the Northern Hemisphere, where the seasons are the right way around, and read a lot of North American food blogs where they are all currently rejoicing in the oncoming autumn. One half of my brain thinks "yay, time for soups and leeks!" while the other side is all "I don't know what to eat right now!!!". Any help on this issue is highly appreciated. Is there a 12-step program for people like me?
