Transition Day:



Yesterday was still damp fall. There were mushrooms to pick in the bottoms, the beech tree by the studio still had a gold glow inside her copper skirt.






















This morning there was a Rabbit Tracker (as in enough snow to), dusting the fallen paw paw leaves, ~



~ and by mid-afternoon the sky opened up into blue with high clouds, illumed with icy white.



Bobby led the cattle into a new pasture. He calls them with a clarion Whuk Whuk and they spread out to munch. Winter has arrived on the hill.

Thanks for the walk!

You're most welcome! Isn't "Let's go for a walk." one of the best invitations? There's (at least) one a day here.

We found some mushrooms in our front yard...yum, yum, so good. I was remembering those blue ones we found that one time.

Mmmmushrooms. How did you cook them, Nancy?

My Thanksgiving turkey is stuffed under the skin with mushrooms and ricotta and Parmesan.

Dan Dutton said...

Oh, that sounds good! I'm still contemplating how to approach this one. Maybe the palm oil would make a good rub, with harissa?

Cathy said...

How would you describe the flavor of palm oil?

Nancy said...

I Stir fried my mushrooms with beef and bok choy, and served it on top of jasmine rice. That is my favorite dish (varying the green).

Cathy said...

Yummy!

Palm oil tastes like carrots. I'm taking that means carotine (vitamen A) is a big part of carrot flavor, since palm oil has 596% of the mdr of A. (!)

Mushrooms in the field are frozen hard today! BRRR!
