Fall Flavors


Every Saturday morning, I love going to our local farmer's market in our hometown of Pleasantville, NY. This morning it was especially nice in preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday. They had lots of wonderful fruits and vegetables, squash, and pumpkins. Aren't these apples pretty? Perfect just like that as a snack or to make a delicious apple pie!


Here are pumpkins in all shapes and sizes for a colorful Fall display at home.
Or the quintessential pumpkin pie!


I love pears, too! Today, they also had pear and apple cider.
Hot ciders are so comforting and warm on crisp Autumn evenings.


Little pumpkins and gourds are just so cute in baskets for lovely Fall arrangements.


And of course, Indian corn, another colorful Fall tradition.

So much to be thankful for, not only on this special holiday, but every day, I am so very grateful.

Thank you all, my lovely readers, for your support and friendship.
I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
