Autumn Apple Vignette…so fun to put together for October.
Apples, sunflowers, pumpkins, fresh bread, strawberry jam and apple cider!
Now that is October wouldn’t you say?
I love October, and I really do not like to see it end… because not only is it the almost perfect time of year weather wise….it also happens to be the time I apparently like to move into homes. None of this was ever planned out in advance, but somehow we have managed to buy houses and move into them in October! Is that wild or what?
I also like October because it is the beginning of cuddling with a book and flannel throw (see how to make one here) ….
….. and delving into a murder mystery.
I really, really like mysteries and try to solve them before the last page of the book.
Which leads me to my next …”AND More” revelation.
I was in Barnes and Noble the other day and I saw the most interesting cover for a book. Naturally, I gravitated towards it because there was food on the cover….but it was in the mystery section of the book store.
Apparently, there is a Bandit Hill Series, by author Blair Merrin that features not only a murder mystery but…..FOOD too! Yay!!!
I bought the book and I will keep you posted on recipes and the mystery.
And…. the picture on the cover was another of my favorites, deviled eggs.
To be more precise, deviled eggs with spiders on top.
Actually, I do not like spiders which is why I relished eating some of the black olives as I was cutting them up.
As you can see, making these deviled eggs was so easy. Use your favorite deviled egg recipe and top with black olives (pitted) and slice them in half. One half is the body of the spider and the other half, sliced thinly is the legs.
How easy is that for a scary side dish?
The vignette for an October celebration was so easy using my vintage cheese board and a tray.
You can see in the picture below that I keep my wood cutting boards and cheese boards very handy utilizing the desk space that used to house my office cubby before I took over one of the guest rooms.
I used fresh apples, Indian corn, pumpkins, fresh bread and beautiful sunflowers that I found at our Farmer’s Market. I also put up some strawberry preserves (see recipe here) a few months ago and added that to my vignette.
I like the way all the foods and colors work together.
Comforting and cozy and delicious.
Have a wonderful day!
