The end of September is my favorite time to visit our Farmer's Market, which is just a few minutes from our home. Not only are the peaches and tomatoes their ripest, but all of the fall squashes and pumpkins begin to appear. Last Saturday we came home with four of these cute little sugar pie pumpkins. At only one dollar each, how could I resist their adorable curved stems.
I also brought home lots of butternut squash, and today I made a big batch of our favorite soup and served it in our little pumpkins.
I'm going to save the pumpkin stems to make more of these!
