Weekend Eats

Happy Monday, friends. It’s chilly here today. The first fire of the season is currently blazing in the wood stove. Huxley and I are fighting off some seasonal allergy or cold, with ample doses of elderberry & honey syrup, ginger tea, and essential oil-infused hot baths. Staying toasty is the order of the day.

This weekend’s eats were amazing. We kicked things off with an apple potluck at Sky Top Orchard on Friday. There were glorious offerings on display, including Faryn & Eli’s curried pumpkin apple soup, Jenny’s apple and berry galette, Dan & Jessica’s arugula & apple salad, Janis’s apple oat crisp, and Tiffany’s cream cheese plate with crackers and dried apples. So, so tasty.

Hubs greeted Saturday morning with a local sweet potato, sausage, apple, and turnip green hash which he topped with eggs from our flock. Later, after my canning class (in which I made enough spiced apple cider for the 9 class attendees, the store’s proprietress extraordinaire Natalie, and 6 extra 1/2-pints for my own holiday gifting), our friends Rich and Jen came over for homemade burgers and fries.

Rich is a self-taught bread-making whiz, and brought along his signature sweet potato buns for the burgers, which were nothing short of fabulous. They also festooned us with homemade lemon applesauce, pumpkin ale, hard cider, seasonal ale, pickled jalapenos, and local Muscadine grapes. So happy to have these new-to-us friends in our lives, and not simply because of their incredible generosity! We took the leftover rolls the next morning and made them into fried egg sandwiches, served alongside warm fried apples. The best.

Sunday my little fella and I stayed in our p.j.’s, snuggled, and worked towards feeling better.

May the week ahead be wonderful for you and yours!
