First of all I would like to say that the title of this post has nothing to do with the year this nice couple got married. I don't know what year they got married. I don't know their names. I DO know they look perfect for a fall farmers market in their hats. I was getting ready to leave the market on Saturday, flowers in hand, bag full of produce, camera put away, when I spotted them. I stopped in my tracks, set everything on the ground, and asked to take their picture. They were kind enough to oblige me.
I also spotted some good looking greens, root vegetables, and pawpaws for sale this week.
Have you ever eaten a pawpaw? Me neither. I just looked them up and read ... "the flavor of pawpaws is forceful and distinct". Maybe next year I will be braver.
I do happen to have an apple cake recipe that I have been waiting to try so I bought a few bags of apples from this fellow who is from way up around Hiawatha.
If you got married in the early 80's, chances are good that you have a corning wear dish just like this with a big lid. It's great for roasting beets. No need to spray, no foil to waste, and it cleans up with minimal scrubbing.
Karen is a flower arranging virtuoso. I love the unusual things she puts in her bouquets. Does this bunch not just completely capture all the best of fall?
