Jade at Apples & Oranges photographed some red sunflowers. The light and the colors are perfect. A table of these couldn't help but put a smile on your face.
Deborah at Pictures, Pots, & Pens has sent in a tribute to pomegranates. This is a centerpiece of one of my favorite fruits. Sandy's centerpiece for October is a fall bowl of New Hampshire apples. Check it out at Rangus Pug!Just a Beach Kat has posted a fresh bouquet of goldenrod that she picked herself. Thanks Kat for a centerpiece that signals the of the end of summer.Zoey who has a Perennial Passion sent the most unusual table setting with orange dahlias and touches of black and white to compliment her peach luster dishes.Meeta What's For Lunch Honey? has been loyal to the COTM, this month she is sharing a beautiful pumpkin display. She always includes How-To instructions, so you can do this yourself!Zoomie has a bit of an advantage since she used to be a florist. Now she is combining art and flowers with a ring of pictures, surrounding a potted primrose.Janelle at Talk of Tomatoes started this roundup, and allowed me to host it to give her a break. This month she posted a batty centerpiece~ I hope not batty because of the move! I am thrilled that so many people have taken the time to send in their centerpieces. I will post November's roundup at the end of the month. Send your link in to me anytime between now and then.

I have been to Palm Desert, for a Slow Travel get together.This was a chance to meet the friends I have made in this internet community. Some I have met before, some I only know online. Gail and John~ I have never met in person before. We met for the first time in Salt Lake City... people at the airport must have thought we were sisters separated at birth. We were instant friends... which is lucky because we are going to Italy together in a few months with Gail's Great Escapes. I finally met Jerry, another food blogger; who kept me in stitches most of the week. He is also going to be a part of our great escape. We can't wait!I shared a condo in Palm Desert with new friends...Kathy, who also does small group tours in a Luberon Experience. Terry is 'just a nurse' like me (she is a nurse anesthetist). We rented a great condo on the golf course, with our own golf cart.
The highlight of the weekend was a dinner for 48, hosted and prepared by PalmaBella and her wonderful husband. I'll make another whole post on the meal... Un- Believable! This says it all about Palma's kitchen.I am glad to be home. I was panicking when I realized I couldn't get my wireless to work. Isn't that pitiful? I can't wait to show you pictures.
Buon Appetito y'all!

In 'Palma' Desert!
My plan was to blog from here. But~ all good plans go astray. We haven't been able to access the internet from our condo. So there will be fabulous stories that will have to wait until I get home. I am at PalmaBella's beautiful Italian villa in the desert. Our hosts Palma and Brad are so gracious, although we are pulling our share of kitchen duty.
Pictures to follow!

Core and slice the apples so they are the same size- about 1/4 inch thick. You will need around 4-5 cups of sliced apples. Toss together with all the ingredients to blend well, set aside. Prepare the pie-crust in a deep dish pie plate. (you can make your own crust if you want to show off)
