Here’s to a perfect 10…

Here in my neck of the woods we are in the midst of the perfect 3 day fall weekend. It is sunny but cool and the foliage is just gorgeous! It seems very fitting to me that it is a three 10 kind of day!! 10/10/10 !! It has inspired me to take some time to share with you all kinds of fall yumminess – yes, I made that word up but by the end of this post, I hope you will agree it is the only word to describe all this good stuff.

To start off I wanted to share 2 recipes that will be staples in our fall diet from now on. First is a recipe I got from my friend Kris. You can visit Kris WAY over there in Cali – at her blog SIMPLIFY. Kris was one of the first blogs I started following and even though we are separated by thousands of miles and she is not a prim gal, we just clicked! You too can click with her ~HERE~! These muffins are so easy and very soft and moist and pretty healthy and plain old YUMMY! My DIL Ang said they were to die for.

Tomorrow I am taking this recipe, adding 2 eggs and baking it in a 10 x 13 baking dish as a cake and serving with whipped cream when Mr. Red Door’s family comes to dinner. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

And here is a side dish I made after seeing the recipe over at my friend Colleen’s blog. I have mentioned Colleen several times and I can’t even count how many of her recipes I have used and loved. My family already loved butternut squash and this dish scored a perfect 10 with everyone. It is called Squash Apple bake. You can find the recipe on Colleen’s blog – go to the recipe index on the side bar. You can get to her blog by clicking ~HERE~. Colleen hosts a recipe swap every Friday and you can find even more yumminess there!

If you have the fall issue of A Primitive Place, then perhaps the pics of this next gorgeous prim house will look familiar! I had lunch with Laurie recently (the wrap and soup were so yummy!) and she was kind enough to allow me to snap a few pictures. She has changed some things around since last fall – here are the new pictures…

Wasn’t there a lot of yummy eye candy ?!!

And last but not least, what would a post about fall yumminess be without some foliage outside my Red Door.

I used a landscape setting and did not retouch these in any way…

Until next time – prim blessings, Grammee Linda
