Tuesday Tidbits #147 🍁Hello October🍁


As I look off across the lake… I see golden trees sprinkled in the forest along with red, green and orange. Here in this area the fall beauty is starting to take shape.

And even if some areas are not sharing in the Autumn Color Glory yet… it’s still quite beautiful!

We are staying a bit later at the LakeHouse this year to experience the ever changing colors of the leaves and also for Homecoming at my Alma Mater at Edinboro University.

Autumn Harvest

I can just squeal for all the goodies that are still at the Roadside Markets! Bi-Color Sweet Corn is still available! Can you believe it? It’s sooooo good and still so sweet. But after a while I just need to have it in a different way… so when I came across Dorothy’s Corn Fritters, I was all in!

These are amazing! I like them with a little sour cream but many, including sweet man, like them served with Maple Syrup. We love using local Maple syrup made up the street from us!

I think making them in my Mother’s Iron Skillet makes them even more tastier! These are a wonderful treat to have for dinner or as an appetizer. Hope you give them a try. Thank you Dorothy for this fabulous recipe!

Autumn Grape Harvest

Here in the Great Lakes Wine Region… Grapes are being harvested. We took a ride near the shores of Lake Erie to see the miles upon miles of vineyards. Such a beautiful area… we like to call it “Our Napa!”

That’s Lake Erie near the horizon. Vineyards are on both sides of the road.
A grape picker.
We ate a handful of these beautiful grapes… they were quite sweet and so delicious.

We stopped at a local winery where they showed us how they pressed grapes for Chardonnay.

Here they pour the grapes into the auger… where they separate the grapes from the stems and the leaves.
The stems and leaves are discarded.
The grapes are pressed to make juice.
It’s quite an operation!
Our wine tastings!

Last Boat Ride

It was a sad day when we took our last Boat Ride for the summer… but it was a perfect fall day!

Hope you are enjoying Autumn where you live! Thanks so much for the visit!
