Next, a pretty October poem to inspire us:
Crispy air and azure skies,
High above, a white cloud flies,
Bright as newly fallen snow.
Oh the joy to those who know October!
Colors bright on bush and tree.
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple and brown and gold.
Thy beauty words have never told. October!
Scolding sparrows on the lawn,
Rabbits frisking home at dawn,
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain,
All in harmony acclaim, October!
Brown earth freshly turned by plow,
Apples shine on bended bough,
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat,
And satisfaction reigns complete. October!
Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air,
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life's worth living when we say, October!
by Joseph Pullman Porter
And last a recipe to make us fat. LOL
If you read my post Deep In Amish Country, at the bottom I mentioned some things that are our favorites to buy at Mrs. Lapp's farm stand. One of the items was Whoopie Pies. If you are not familiar with Amish or Pennsylvania Dutch cooking you might night know what these strange sounding things are. They are actually small cakes (or fat cookies) which are put together with a sweet filling, kind of like a giant Oreo. There are different flavors of both the cakes and fillings. Chocolate with white filling is traditional. I have also had chocolate with peanut butter filling. In a word, they are yummy! Here is a link to a fall Whoopie Pie recipe (courtesy of Martha Stewart) that sounds delicious:
