on Tuesday stopped at a favorite veg stand to stock up on what was available. purposely passed by winter squashes and apples in favor of those that will soon be gone for another year like little cukes, corn, beans and summer squash. this means on the menu is a double batch of corn fritters, zucchini bread (muffin size), clam chowder with new potatoes, bruschetta, sauteed cabbage and carrots among others. while fall is beautiful, it is bittersweet as the garden bounty fades away. sarah and her helpers who work the magic cannot be praised enough for adding such deliciousness to the table again this summer. the stand closes columbus day but plan to make one more gathering visit for whatever is available and maybe some peach habanero jam....delish! *** and to make this quilty, today is stars day and also 2 blocks for the farmer's wife sew-along...cool and windy and definitely fall-like the rest of the week!
