More bounty from the local farmers market

I have been visiting our local Farmers Market quite a bit lately. I love the fall harvest. The colors are so beautiful. I usually go with my husband and sometimes my daughter. My daughter and I have sort of a contest every year to pick the gourd with the most bumps and is well ,ugly lol.

When we got home we start cooking, homemade soup and fresh tomato sauce are among the treats we make.

It always turns out to be such a nice family day. I love to cook and I can't think of any place I would rather be than in the kitchen with my daughter cooking something delicious.
Look at those portabella mushrooms and the color in the eggplant. I love fall.

Have a great week and God bless you Anne

Aw, I think the bumps on the gourds give them more character. Those eggplants are such a rich color, bet they taste really good. My favorite is the cabbage.
