Simple Pleasures: Autumn’s Bountiful Harvest


*With autumn just around the corner, thought I’d share this encore post from 2008.*

The simple pleasures like a crisp, fall apple never lose their appeal, do they?

Happy Weekend!

My Poetic Path

One of my favorite simple pleasures of Autumn.

The harvest of tree fruits and root vegetables, now at their flavorful peak. Including of course, crisp and delicious fall apples.

These BC Gala apples are so good to eat fresh or to add to a favorite recipe.

And don’t they make a lovely (albeit photo) still life to behold?

 One of myfavoriteapple recipes from Not Just for Vegetarians is: Curried Apple Soup(click for recipe).

Tangy, satisfying and a great choice for any fall supper.

What is your favorite apple variety/recipe?

Happy Cooking and Happy Autumn! (it’s almost here)

Don’t forget to savor the simple pleasures, every day!   🙂

    They sure don’t, Geraldine!

    Do you know what I love most about fall? The smells of cinnamon and nutmeg.

    Gala and Fuji are my two favorite apples. Yummy!

    Have a super Saturday!

  3. Lovely still life picture. I wish my apples looked that good. I’m afraid mine are only good for feeding the birds.

  4. yum i smella cobbler or pie in your future…or maybe i am just hopeful for one in mine…smiles…

  5. Hi Jackie, And a happy weekend back to you!

    Hi Ron, Love those spices, especially wafting from a fresh baked apple pie! Sound good? 😉 And a great weekend back at ya Ron!

    Hi Val, Thanks Val, I like how the shadows fell on the apples in this pic. Fun when that happens and you don’t need to work at it. LOL.
    Too bad about those apples but at least the birdies are having a treat. 😉

    Hi Brian, Yummm…cobbler, ahhh…I really need to get back to cooking and baking, I’ve been so busy online, it’s been sidelined recently. I miss the kitchen! I’m guessing you like to cook, am I right?

    Happy Autumn, G
