Farmer’s Market and Four Mile Ridge Food Failures

Once the weather starts to cool and the smell of fall is in the air, I go into baking overdrive.  I love the seasons and the change in the weather always inspires me like none other.  I just can’t wait to share all of my favorite fall recipes with you.

But, I had a Four Mile Ridge Food Failure kinda weekend.  Good weekend, but lots of baking boo-boos.  I hated the apple crisp I made (used old-fashioned rolled oats instead of quick), the cheesecake filling for my Caramel Apple Cheesecake bars was lumpy and the caramel got too hard, my Spiced Apple Cider Mini-Muffins mostly all stuck to the pan and my grilled buffalo chicken pizza with hot peppers burnt (we ate it anyway).  Ug.  So, I salvaged what I could and will try again.  Soon.  But not tonight.

On a better note, the weekend’s hi-lites were:  the Oakland Farmer’s Market, lunch with Aunt Bee at Uno’s and a play date for Joss on Friday night.


It was so hard to make up my mind.  I love this picture.  Fruits and veggies are vibrant!  Gives the Skittles slogan a whole new meaning.



A barefoot musician was providing the live entertainment.  She played “Twinkle Twinkle” and a few other crowd-pleasing favorites.



We fell in love with the bouquets and the flower-picker of the family had a hard hard time resisting.  Finally a kind soul gave her a flower, so I bought some salad greens.  They are amazing, BTW.






Her $2 spent very wisely.




I love Garrett County.  And I love these two.  And I love weekends.

Even Four Mile Ridge Terrible Horrible No-Good Very Bad Food Failure Weekends.
