Cabbage & Red Pepper Stir fry And a glimpse down the Blueberry hill


Come Autumn, the leaves are starting to yellow, the temperature falling to 60's -70's, the apples are plump and red, and so we went Apple picking. We drove to a farm 20 minutes from where we live  with a beautiful hill view; and as usual i wanna own a house there :).I have this fancy of owning houses in all the beautiful places i visit ..i know its a passing fancy till i see the next place. So coming back to the farm, for the first time i decided to give a part of my heart in admiring the wild flowers and other vegetables there, along with fleshy apples. Though I was tempted to bag some of the flowers , i overcame that desire and simply admired the natures majesty and enjoyed the view down the Blueberry hill. Since this year was a bit awkward with dry spring, wet and dewy trying summer, we got to see some berries, before they are down.We ate a lot of apple, packed  quite a lot too, and bought all fresh cheese, duck eggs, apple sauces, and apple doughnuts. We were on an apple Diet the weekend; An apple a day keeps the doctor away, Apples on  weekend ....??
