Welcome to Fresh Foods Wednesday #94!
So I’m staying with my parents right now and the community garden has been pulled up for the Fall. The vegetables have all been harvested. And eaten. Except for some of the garlic. And we’re back to buying produce from the farmer’s market and grocery store.
This time of year is always my favourite – it’s so fitted for bulky sweaters, tights under dresses and hot water bottles at night. It’s the best. Swish, swish, crunch go leaves underfoot. Red wine starts making regular appearances at the dinner table. I love Autumn. I just wish the fresh Summer produce lasted longer. My CSA ends this next week too. Man, how the seasons fly by.
Are you loving the Fall?
A snippet of this week’s bounty: Quiet mornings in the country with coffee; The best pumpkin beer in the world; country life; snail mail from lovely friends; cold weather cocktails (thanks to Farm City Co-Op for the abundant apple supply); wine time; birthdays of pumpkin cheesecake; the last of the Summer carrots in the community garden; cookies, lots.
Check out more of the stuff I chowed down on via my Instagram Feed (because I pretty much live there).
