First walked over to the farmers market this damp gray morning. Tonight we'll have our last dinner together for 12 days... I was thinking some braised artichokes and potatoes and I'd roast the butternut squash and sweet potatoes with honey (for my honey).
then walk home on a wet fall day.
took in the last little harvest and all the plants inside
And tomorrow I leave this, the view from out my front door...
See you in Paris everyone!

Photos by Mrs. French
I just learned this morning that one of my most favoritist blogger friends just did something amazing. She opened her own shop here and is selling her gorgeous photographs. I've been loving her work from afar since I "met" her via her wonderful blog Bliss. I always feel her vignettes shout the strength of the small things and find the whispers of beautiful landscapes, Her colors so delicately and softly antiqued, and every drop of light is ready to dance! They are just where I want to be when life isn't always so sweet...
The ones above are on my wish list, for sure...

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.
