the weekend.

the first saturday of the fall season i was outta bed with the sun. i took a stroll around the yard while the hubby slept. just me and my camera enjoying the quiet, cool morning.

then i whipped up a homemade, from scratch southwestern fritatta. so yummy. mushrooms, minced garlic, peppers sauted in a pan with butter. then i added eggs scrambled with cheese and some diced ham, seasoned with some cumin, salt and pepper. topped it with fresh cilantro and popped it into the oven to set. and voila! a one dish breakfast with a sliced apple on the side.

then we met up with some dear friends, piled in a car and set off up the mountain to the farmers market in asheville. we wandered around there for several hours, both jessi and i wishing we could do this every day.

we were in awe of all the pumpkins and all the varieties there were! i mean, who knew there were so many! i want a pumpkin farm of my very own.

and i couldn't leave without some nc mountain apples. i only bought a half a peck, for now. i will be back for more!

oh and i have to tell you about the jelly i bought. blackberries and brandy. O. M. G. such a powerful combination. i spread a bit on my waffles this morning. i may or may not have had a couple spoonfuls straight outta the jar, too. there were also so many other unusual flavors. i'll have to go back for more of that too.

i hope everyone had a fantastic first weekend of fall! i know i did.
