Weekend














Happy Sunday!  Fall weather is back - pretty excited about that.  It was quite warm and humid throughout the week, not Fall-ish at all, but the air has found it's crispness again.

Friday was our last trip back to Rhode Island for the year.  That's the reason for all the beach photos.  It's a 4-hour drive for us each way, but it's a place we can just relax, clear our minds, and reset.  Winter is going to be extremely busy for us so we decided we were in need of this little day trip.

The weather was amazing - breezy but the sun was shining brightly.  We walked the beach in Galilee, had fresh seafood for lunch, and sat to watch the boats coming and going.  The surf was just starting to get pretty good because of the hurricane in Bermuda so we enjoyed watching the surfers for quite some time at Point Judith as well.

Saturday was a rainy day and our last day at the summer Farmer's Market in Ballston Spa.  Despite the rain and the very poor vendor appearance {only 5 of us showed up}, we had quite a few happy customers that could at least cross some items off of their lists.  Our winter market starts November 2nd giving us 1 full weekend off to prep products.  We spent the time between customers on Saturday discussing our gameplan for the winter market as well as next summer's market{s}.  We were cold from sitting in the rain so we turned the pellet stove on and made a quick stovetop version of Chicken Tortilla Soup when we got home.

Today we're making soap and filling orders.  We're also on our way down to the Sunday market to find out where our space will be when we start that in 2 weekends.

If you don't follow our facebook page, then you missed the link I shared to these yummy and adorable Bloomin' Apples shared on the Gunny Sack blog.  It's been a pretty popular link.  I'm going to give the recipe a try this week.  Some of the readers have already tried them and shared that the tartness from the apples mixes so well with the creamy caramel to make a scrumptious little bite.

On the menu this week:  Pot Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy and Carrots; Baked Cod with Seared Scallops, Rice and Roasted Broccoli; Chicken Teriyaki with Pot Stickers and Vegetable Stir Fry; Honey-Soy Korean Cut Ribs with Risotto and Sauteed Squash; Chicken Relleno Bake with Mexican Rice and Corn; and Cider-Braised Pork Tenderloin with Scalloped Potatoes and Green Beans.

Hoping you're having a wonderful weekend!!
