Time Out

I will get back to talking about my trip to France but this is just a short intermission to bring you a little peek into what’s going on at the local Farmers’ Markets.  Fall is really settling in here in Seattle – it’s been raining (that is just a little too early, if you ask me!); the overnight temps are down in the 40s; and the days seem to be getting shorter in leaps and bounds.  But there is one good thing – fall produce. 
 
I love the earthy colors, the rich and hearty flavors, the solid weight of it. 
 
This weekend while stopping at the U-District Farmers’ Market I found lots of treasures: pumpkins and squash that will find their way into soups, pasta and maybe quick breads; eggplant for baked dishes like moussaka; corn to eat right off the cob.  Even the lettuce I picked up was a bright red – as if choosing to wear its fall wardrobe, too.  Pears and apples were also in abundance.   Yes, it’s definitely fall.

    Dang, BH – never been to Barcelona – you are making me jealous.  Recently snuck over the boarder into San Sebastian though!  Someday, if I ever have a chance to work my way through the 1000 or so photos I took I might actually start posting again!  At least I just got a product launch out of the way yesterday – that will help some!  Let me know what you find… I will make it there one day – maybe next year, in fact.  I have an an idea for a Spain/Morocco jaunt …
