~Fall Orange Wreath and Simple & Sweet Fridays #242~

I love drying citrus slices for Fall arrangements!
I dried oranges, limes and lemons.
I used our Nesco dehydrator.
You can use it for apples, pineapples, etc.
After the oranges were dried, I used a small gauge wire and bent it around the oranges to make a hoop.
I have a pretty crystal wreath,
 we bought at Smith & Hawkins awhile back.
I hooked the wired oranges onto the wreath.
I ended up placing it over our mantel,
 where a mirror is hanging.
It looks so pretty with lights on it.
Sparkle everywhere!!

Stan planted more pumpkins about 6 weeks ago.
We have new ones coming up!!
A new Fall pumpkin patch!
These are some of the ones,
 we grew earlier this year.

Roses are still flourishing in San Diego!
A glass of wine with some fried zucchini from the garden for an appetizer!!
Aren't these pumpkins the cutest!!
They're assorted Belgian Chocolate Pumpkins from
Trader Joe's!!
So good!

~Pomegranate Small Bites and Simple & Sweet Fridays #241~

I wanted to share with you ideas this week for small bites with pomegranates.
This Fall in San Diego we harvested a lot of pomegranates off our tree.
An easy appetizer is a round of brie cheese served with pomegranates on top.
Sliced cucumber with cream cheese and pomegranates.
Toasted sliced baguette with some raw acacia honeycomb and pomegranates.
Pita bread toasted and sliced into wedges and topped with ricotta cheese, arugula, dried cranberries, grated lemon peel and pomegranates.
I couldn't resist making a salad with roasted delicata squash, arugula, pine nuts, lemon vinaigrette and pomegranates.
Endive leaves served with creamy Laughing Cow cheese and pomegranates.
This is a photo of our pomegranate tree.

I love their little crowns!!
I chilled some glasses and put sugar on the rims.
Just the right time for a pomegranate martini!

~Sweet Monday~

I decided to make a simple apple pie for dessert!
Of course, I added some pretty flowers too! 
 My apple peeler comes in handy 
when making apple pies for the holiday!

A sweet and delicious dessert!

We're so lucky to live in San Diego where the weather is perfect to grow all these flowers! Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
