in the kitchen

Lately, this is what we’ve been making in the kitchen.

:: I am glad I’ve been (sort of) keeping up with a weekly menu.

:: I made a few batches of roasted tomato sauce base, based on this recipe on Smitten Kitchen. DSC_0017 copy

:: Made the apple and pumpkin galette after reading and seeing Amanda’s photos of her individual pies.  We liked it.  I think we’ll have to try them again. DSC_0029 copy DSC_0031 copy

:: I’ve been making bread more often.  it is so nice to have the oven on when the days are cooler, and the soups have started to appear more often on the table. DSC_0204 copy DSC_0206 copy

:: Though not on the food stall in the Farmer’s Market, I had to bring these fall colors to brighten the rooms at home. DSC_0217 copy

:: Thank goodness for menus already planned. Once I have dinner figured out for the week, it makes our days, and week, go so much smoothly.DSC_0215 copy

:: The garden is slowly slowing down.  Mark has been cleaning the plants, and picking the last of our produce.  It was such a rich year.  Thank you gardeners for all your hard work in making it all happenDSC_0011 copy DSC_0001 copy DSC_0014 copy DSC_0218 copy DSC_0008 copy DSC_0220 copy

:: After our trip to Hood River and seeing all there is out there, we brought some home and have been enjoying them for days and days. DSC_0003 copy DSC_0002 copy

Such a variety, it’s fun to try them all.
