Monday was a beautiful fall day and perfect for a day in the country with friends. My friends and I drove out to Huber's Farm to spend a leisurely day eating delicious comfort food, browsing the farmers market, enjoying the breathtaking fall colors and wine tasting at the winery.
Of course the first thing on our minds when we arrived was eating. Their homestyle food is wonderful. If you haven't had the fried biscuits with fresh apple butter (seen in the picture), let me tell you it is like heaven in your mouth. I'm talking 5 women who usually eat very little bread ate 2 and 1/2 baskets of these luscious delights. While we were devouring the hot bread and waiting for the main course, we belatedly celebrated Kelly's birthday with cards and gifts.
After the delicious lunch, it was time to walk off all that bread while we checked out the cute, and not so cute fall decorations. There was lots to see and the weather couldn't have been more beautiful.
Three of the girls took the wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch while Libby and I decided to stay in the gift shop looking at all the goodies. When they returned we loaded up and went down the road to the Farmers Market and Winery.
When you walk into the Farmers Market, the smell of baking bread, fresh out of the oven, seduces your senses like a passionate lover. And, as if that wasn't enough to entice you, there is a large glass case filled with fresh, made from scratch, fudge in several flavors. This is just the bakery end. They also tempt you with tables of apples of all varieties, along with any other fruits or vegetables in season, and shelves of jams, jellies, honey, sorghum and many other mouth-watering foods. Outside you find all sorts of pumpkins and squash.
As you can see, we had a wonderful day. There is nothing better than a beautiful fall day spent in the country with great friends.
Until next time...that's my view.
