Grocery shopping takes on more of community feel the closer we get to harvest time. Yesterday, the displays of vegetables were mounded high and there were rows of peaches in baskets, hand picked from area orchards. As we were deciding over a basket of new potatoes, R spied the small bite-size ones that we really love. An obliging fellow shopper passed them to us from across the display so we wouldn't have to walk around. The lower prices had me pondering over the peppers as to what I could make with them. Kristina has posted recently about the vegetables from her allotment and inspired me to bake a cauliflower cheese - several times lately. It was on the menu again last night and was delicious, for dessert we had apple pie. Fall and the glorious smell of woodsmoke will be upon us soon and I for one, can't wait!
