The delights of autumn!
Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bisque, pumpkin seeds, and jack o' lanterns. Whatever the sight of pumpkins conjures up, the season is here. I took this photo of these lovely pumpkins at a roadside stand about a month ago when we were up at Catawba Island for the weekend. They had all kinds of good stuff here, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. In the background of this photo you can see the row of bushel baskets overflowing with fresh ears of corn. We bought a dozen and they were so good, especially dripping with the fresh Amish butter we bought down the road at the cheese place. Of course we also bought 3 different kinds of fresh Amish cheese too. It was a high calorie weekend but hey, you have to splurge once in awhile!
