I love the fact that apples, in cold storage, will last for months. I still have local apples in my fridge from a couple of months ago, in perfectly dandy shape. It’s the gift that keeps giving.
I really miss AJ’s (of Sassafrass Bakery fame) cute decorated cookies, like these adorable Halloween ones.
And I sort of regret not getting a pie pumpkin this year. I hear pumpkin pie made from scratch is a totally different beast than your canned Libby’s puree. I’ll have to give it a try next year.
Still can’t fall in love with chestnuts, no matter how much I want to.
Now this is an interesting specimen. Not sure what its scientific name is, but I call it a Peanut Pumpkin. Anyone know if the squash’s flavor is similiar to normal pumpkins?
We made a great batch of broccoli cheddar soup with a couple of these beautiful stalks of broccoli.
The weather was definitely taking a turn to the cold by this point, although nowhere nearly as bone-chillingly cold as it is right now. I’d take the 50ish temps in a heartbeat right now.
