Trip to the Orchard!

****See below for my recipe for Mini Baby Baked Cajun Sweet Potato Fries: My first post for Vegan MoFo!****

We went to Homestead Farms, a local orchard, today and picked up some wonderful produce.  We picked our own Fuji and Cameo apples and picked our pumpkins straight off the vine.  Also picked up some gnarley mini squash/pumpkins and some green beans at the market on the farm.  I just HAD to share some of the pics from this glorious day we had.  It truly could not have been a more beautiful day.

Truly a PERFECT day!

    • Thank you so much! I WAS going to display the pumpkins, but now I may cook the blue-ish colored one (on the right side of the pic). I found out it’s called a Queensland Blue and it is very sweet and delicious. The apples will go into pies and apple-cinnamon muffins. All of which I plan to post 🙂
