A little easy Fall





This little acorn from a walk to the grocery store.





My favorite things about early Fall: Acorns. Pumpkins. Wild Mushrooms. Leeks.

Easy Fall Meal
Sauteed Wild Mushrooms and Leeks with butter, fresh sage, tarragon & thyme*

Roasted Squash (this one is a beautiful Delicata) (about 40 min. at 350)
drizzled with light honey and fresh chopped chives & mint.


* this can also be the base to poach a fish like cod, haddock, flounder or sole.
Just lay the fish on top, add s&p to taste, 1/2 c. white wine and simmer 'til fish is done.

Ohhhh, Yum! Tempting my taste buds and making me eager to cook.
Adorable acorn, lucky you living within walking distance to the store. We live way way out now, no store walking for us : (

I loved collecting acorns when I was small. I would have buckets of them. I didn't do much with them, but the squirrels around my house found a veritable gold mine when they got into those buckets.

You always make the best looking meals! It inspires me to branch out and try something new.

I like the adventures of the acorn very much. It also reminds me, in the suspended piece, of the tension in the early morning barbed wire photograph at Accept all Offerings blog.
