Having some downtime has meant getting the farmer’s market. I am grateful I was able to get that in before the summer ended. Artistic expression is very personal and being here reminded me of the quilts I am trying to make for the Santa Paula Art Museum for their agricultural exhibit and for the Chicago Botanical Gardens Fine Art of Fiber Show through the Illinois Quilters Association.
Someone recently asked me what my favorite part of fall was. Personally, I prefer spring and summer, but if I had to choose, I would say pumpkin butter and/or sweet potato butter on my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I use Pumpkin butter and sweet potato butter rather than jelly. Farmer’s markets like these are great places to purchase such items.
Another favorite is acorn squash. Acorn squash seems to be a family favorite, particularly for my dad. He loves soup, especially the soup I make soups during the fall with it. I will list recipe details later.
