Sunday 2pm

I went to the farmers market in hopes of late season tomatoes but was out of luck, there were none. I could eat summer ripe tomatoes year round and never be tired of them. Oh well it looks as if I'll have to wait until next year. The market was full of fall bounty, squash, pumpkins, gourds, pomegranates, and persimmons. I tasted a persimmon and did not like the taste, it reminded me of an apple with all of the sweetness and juice sucked out of it-needless to say I didn't buy any. I'm now home having started my day early. The sky is over cast and a cool front has blown in. The perfect day for an afternoon bath and a nap. Tonight I'm roasting some butternut squash in the oven with alittle olive oil and rosemary. Not sure what the protein will be but the idea of roasting squash sounds warm and homey and I'm in the mood for that. Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.


  1. It sounds wonderful for dinner. Nice and fall like. Kicking myself today I didn't buy two boxes of books. Miss you.

  2. Roasted butternut - yum! Squash and pumpkin are the best part of autumn... and they keep into the winter.

  3. Thanks so much for thinking of me Lorrie - you are such a sweetie!

    BEAUTIFUL pictures!


  4. Such beautiful photos, Lorrie! And roasted butternut squash is the best! We often stuff ours before roasting - one of my favorite meals!

    I wonder if the persimmon you tasted wasn't quite ripe - I love them when they are soft, sweet and super juicy! Persimmon pudding (a steamed pudding) is one of my faves!

    Hugs, Silke
