I have been so busy with my work and my dad that I kind of just stumble by these days with my posts and decorating at home. I did get Farmer's Union decorated. It is such a great space even I can hardly screw it up. If you follow me on instagram you have already seen some of these. If you don't please do!! All of these fabulous pumpkins came from Borchard Farms in Salinas if you are local. They have the best varieties and the best prices in the entire area. Thanks Martha and Roxanne for the shout out. It is worth the jaunt
This olive bucket filled with cotton was already here. I just added a few pumpkins.
The backdrop for these beauties is the original brick wall. How can you go wrong with that for a backdrop?
This great bottle and carrier from Patine provides a great backdrop for these pumpkins also from Borchard Farms
If you are local this Wednesday Dave's Oyster Shak and Grill will be at Farmer's Union. I plan to be there!
Fall is not really evident in most places here on the Central Coast but the Vineyards provide us a glimpse of fall. These Chualar Canyon vines caused me to pull my car over on the way home a few nights ago.
4 ounces thick-sliced bacon
2 cups gemelli
1½ cups milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
3 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar, grated
2 ounces blue cheese, such as Roquefort, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
l basket heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 bunch fresh basil
If you are indulging in Mac and Cheese you have to eat a healthy salad, right? For this simple salad I use a bag of the mixed greens from the Farmers Market and fresh strawberries and make a dressing (that is hard to beat) with these two ingredients (I kid you not) and salt and pepper.
I belong to the Pasolivo club. This is not a paid post. I absolutely LOVE their olive oils. You can use this Sparkling Citrus Vinegar with any of their Citrus Olive Oils with just salt and pepper and make the most amazing dressing.
Happy Fall and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your comments on my trend post. You guys really make my day. I will be back on Friday with a Fashion Post. Have a great week! I so enjoy your comments!!
