So much color at the Raleigh Farmer’s Market this time of year! Pumpkins, gourds, and mums are all so bright and festive!
Even the eggplants are colorful!
I especially like the white pumpkins!
In the garden, the Korean daisies are beautiful!
And I think the vegetables have given up their last!
I am enjoying the cool nights and the falling leaves…
I am an economist! I hate throwing anything away! So I had some whipping cream in the refrigerator and a French baguette which was not the freshest! Milk and bread and this what happened!
It’s kind of like a German style French toast. Soak slices of the day old baguette in milk and then fry it in just enough hot oil to brown it.
I like them a golden brown. Remove and leave on paper towels to drain a cool. The cream in the bread will be very hot!
Making the whipped cream.
Place the cold whipping cream in a container with a little sugar to sweeten- if you wish.
After about 15 minutes or so- BAM!
A dollop on the fried bread- mm
And now you can go to the farmers market and look at pumpkins!
Muhly Grass- these are in the desert garden at the JC Raulston Arboretum at North Carolina State University
Pho – a Vietnamese beef broth and chicken soup with basil and cilantro
Camellia sasanqua – the Fall and Winter bloomers of the genus. This is Hanna Jiman
I love this border and The Necessary at JC Raulston – (the restroom)
And I can’t leave out the fried green beans at The Borough in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina
