Hope you two feel better very soon, GG and princess.

7:45 here, just have to get my sandals on, stop at the ATM, then headed for the farmers market.

I love farmer's markets! However, we have tons of farms within 10 minutes of us, so I tend to pick up produce directly from them.

This is my favorite time of year with all the fall vegetables especially squash. Delicato is the best, but I never pass up Acorn or Spaghetti squash either.

Going out that way today to run other errands and may have to stop by a few of them.

Enjoy the day, everyone!

That's cute! I'll have to look for a dinner bell style. DH doesn't want me drilling holes in the door for a knocker, and our doorbell works maybe once every ten times.

I took a long walk this morning and may do it again this afternoon. After the walk I hit a donut shop so there went the calories I may have lost.

Acorn are my favorite squash, especially loaded with butter and brown sugar. Hubbard and turban are a close second. I prefer the texture of the older heirloom type squash. They make a better pie than pumpkin, as well.

That's all I know.

Thanks, PF and Cheryl. PF, feel better!

I got myself together enough to get to the farmers market before they closed and got the corn and cucumbers I wanted. I also got a couple large yellow onions, a red onion and a little zucchini. Now I'm resting with a glass of G2 (doctor's orders, to keep hydrated) and DH is watching the Michigan football game.

GG, glad to read that you managed to get to the farmer's market. Don't over-exert yourself.

I came home with a pretty good haul from the farmers market this morning! I'll be eating fresh fruits and veggies for days - hope I didn't overbuy. Fixin' to cut up the watermelon and cantaloupe and chop up the onion to freeze. I might quickly blanch, cube, and vacuum seal 2 of the squash. Kind of thinking a version of ratatouille, too.
