October Days


I love going to the farmstands this time of year.  The above Hemingways is on my way to grocery shopping and I love to stop and browse the paths and green houses.  So colorful and full of Fall pumpkins and Mums.


I wish that I lived closer to Norwich and could get a Pumpkin latte.  The ice latte or the regular latte sounds like so fun.


I love the above style house with a porch that is typical New England style.  So beautiful any time of the year.


Every time I go anywhere lately, I see a herd of  wild turkeys either in the field or crossing the road.    They always take their time and just casually trot along.

Pumpkin Mousse

Sur la Table has really awesome Fall cooking classes.  I do not live near any of their areas where they have their classes, but I love to find recipes from some of their ideas for cooking classes.  I found a recipe for Pumpkin Mousse and they had bourban whipped cream for a topping.  I found a recipe for bourban whipped cream as well as pumpkin mousse.   I pinned them in my Fall Recipes board on my Pinterest.  I love how they put the mousse in a wine goblet.

They also had a class to make wild mushroom gravy and I found that recipe and put the recipe in my Fall recipe board on my Pinterest.


Then they had fluffy buttermilk mashed potatoes for their Thanksgiving ideas cooking class.   I found a recipe for buttermilk mashed potatoes with chives that is similar and I put it in my Fall recipes board or my Thanksgiving board.  It’s fun to find recipes that are in Sur la Table cooking classes.


Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are always fun to make in the Fall.  I have several recipes for the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies and found a new recipe from the Food Network that I put in my Fall recipes board on my Pinterest.



I love Vermont farms in the Fall.  Especially when they have a pond and a dirt driveway.


I like all the ideas people come up with to carve pumpkings.   They have all these neat knives that can make intricate designs in pumpkins.  The above sunflower design looks neat from being lit from inside the pumpkin with a candle.


Just punching little holes to make letters is a cute idea.


I love the ideas that people come up with to decorate with pumpkins.


The Farmstands are loaded with all kinds of pumpkins to choose from this time of year.


Ideas are only as creative as your imagination, and searching for ideas.



I love Mac apples this time of year and got a bag of them recently at a local farmstand.  They are just so good fresh picked from the trees.


I love the Mums and the colorful kale for Fall decorating this time of year.  The farmstands have all kinds of Mums and kale.

I think that October is one of my favorite times of the year in this part of the country.
