Another Pie, Another Sunset

I made a second tarte tatin a few days ago. Just as good as the first, only this time we had a coing (quince) and a poire (pear) in the house, so I added them to the apples. I also added a little cinnamon for fun. It was tasty.

Tarte tatin number two.

As these fall weather systems organize and come through, we get amazing clouds and sunsets. This one came a couple days ago. Sunday's sunset will probably not be spectacular seeing as it's supposed to be mostly overcast and it may rain.

Sunset over the vineyards.

Yard work really slows down when it's wet out there. But there is still much to do, so we wait for sunny days. In the meantime, we cook and watch tv. Still, there's the garage to clean out, the outdoor furniture to get in, and housework to keep us both busy. Ah, life in France!


  1. yumm yumm for that tatin photo :)

    I have to say, I REALLY don't like it being dark in the morning. For a good long stretch every year, I drive to work in darkness that makes it feel like it's 3:00 a.m. instead of 6:30!


  2. Pie at sunset. With which wine do you pair it?

  3. judy, I know, and every year it takes getting used to again!

    starman, I think it was a Bergerac red!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
