While walking Oliver through the backwoods behind our home I happened to stumble across a beautiful patch of gold. Forest gold! Just have a look at this basket of beauts ! And this particular lovely little basket full of Golden Chanterelle’s came along with us on a recent trip to my most favorite place on earth this time of year. I tell you friends there is nothing more beautiful (to me) than spending time on our piece of property in mountain country during the fall. It is here where golden mornings greet us and my heart sings with pure happiness. The branches of the apple trees are heavy with fruit and the horses beg for them like nobody’s business.
We came to visit recently after retrieving our silver girl from the nearby RV repair shop called Whispering Pines. They took such good care of our silver girl, I was so pleased ! I am not even kidding here — the fantastic, caring, talented (I can go on and on) repairman even took the time to organize our messy storage compartments (and by messy, I mean MESSY, disorganized. Oh the chaos.) Everything is now fixed and in tip-top shape ready for the upcoming winter season.
But first, did you know? Fall is here ! Time for warm fuzzy sweaters, hot cider, a good book and time spent outdoors enjoying the cool crisp golden days. It’s time for comforting stews, roasts and pumpkin pies — all those wonderful things. Even the mushrooms are happy it’s Fall as they seem to be sprouting up everywhere I look lately.
A toss in the skillet with a clove of garlic and a dash of olive oil, these Chanterelle’s caramelized up in no time. I salted them only at the end and sprinkled them with snipped chives from my garden. We enjoyed them with eggs, sunny side up and a hunk of cheese.
Do you notice anything new in my silver kitchen? Give up? Ok! Please take notice of my brand new beautiful RED kitchen floor mat. But this is not just your regular old mat I tell you, it is from the company called GelPro. Talk about cooking in comfort, words can’t even describe how this feels. Even hubby loves it — he told me, “They should make flooring out of this!” A sweet friend of mine mailed it to me as a thank you ! A thank you for this here blog you are reading right now because it has inspired her with her Airstream trailer. I just had to share and THANK YOU Lisa !! I absolutely love it :) xoxo
Oliver says hello and wonders if you like the new pillow in the silver house? I made it by sewing two bandana’s together. I love it very much :)
Baked eggs with garlicky Chanterelles :) Did you know? Eggs and Mushrooms love each other ♥
Where ever you may be, I am wishing you a gloriously golden happy fall!
I continue to work hard in corporate America on the weekdays and spend my spare time dreaming of weekends here. We will be coming back more frequently to enjoy the Fall season, maybe even this weekend. B is doing great in sixth grade. He loves his new school (it’s Middle School now for the boy — so long elementary). Hubby and I bought him a new phone too. Can I please say how nice it is he has a phone now? I can always reach him and he sends me some of the sweetest texts ever.
“I love you Mommy,” he types . . . ah my heart.
We also refinished our garage floor, which took quite a bit of work I say. Moving over 15 years worth of stuff out so the new floor could go on. I’m happy to report I am happy it’s over ha !
I’m also excited to get to work on some new pieces for my Etsy shop. Hopefully soon my shelves over there will be nice and stocked :)
Peace & Love,
~ Monica xoxo
