It’s Friday!?

{{We went a bit muffin crazy this week. Did you notice?}}

Mike and I stopped to gaze at  this amazing sunset on Saturday as we drove home from church. The day had been blustery and raw, but late afternoon brought a break in the dark heavy clouds, enough to catch this glorious sight over the farm fields near our house.

And wonders of wonders, Monday morning started off with this beauty, captured as I lay in bed sipping coffee. The best of both worlds!

I spent a pleasant Sunday afternoon with a friend, and stared in awe at this tenuous smokestack across the street from his loft.

A delicious weekend breakfast

The new week started out in a proper way.

I’m enamored with hand-made gifts, especially when you get a permanent snapshot of it, embossed on a silver disc.

Something good is about to happen in my kitchen.

There was warm Apple Crisp with Brown Sugar glaze.

The week included baking a Honey Whole Wheat Pumpkin bread, stuffed with crunchy millet.

It was divine. I’m so glad I doubled it and put one in the freezer.

And there was a bubbling risotto too, casting a warm glow over a chilly day.

There was A LOT of scenic Fall color. Again. But it’s fading fast.

{{i’m cheating just a tad, and throwing in some great shots that Clara took on a few of our walks}}

I came upon an upended tree that held fast to a secret within it’s roots.

{{if you can’t tell…. it’s a huge rock that the tree simply grew around}}

And there was the discovery of a secret waterfall that sent my heart skipping in joy.

I definitely will be going back to this spot. The sound of that waterfall was mesmerizing.

What else has been running through my head this week?

Butternut Squash Nut Burgers. My stack of meatless burger options keeps growing.

Multigrain Risottos. It’s not just about Arborio anymore.

Baked Hush Puppies. Baked?? Say no more……

There is no end to the deliciousness you can create with Kale.

Crock pot delight for a cold Fall day- Curried Vegetable & Chickpea Stew

More amazing whole grain goodness– Warm Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables

Incredible Avocado and Tomatillo Salsa from Herbivoracious

And be sure to stop back on Monday for Round Three of my Cookbook giveaway!!
