Fall in Maine

On Sunday we visited Abenaki Draft Horse Club October fest.
The "Team" did not work this event, instead they were put of the petting zoo..
It was a pleasure to take part it gives the community a chance to learn a little about draft horses and it gives the boys a chance to socialize.

It was very cold Sunday, unseasonably cold.
On Sunday I made Smoked Ham Glazed with Maple Syrup
Butternut Squash and Mashed Local Potatoes a comforting meal after a cool day outdoors.
Today I am going to make home made mac and cheese with ham, mustard  and pretzel topping .
 This will use up the left over ham.

My cooking is always very seasonal , and now the focus is fall.
I am enjoying a newly released cook book

I tested this last Sunday , it had just come out of the oven when Bob and his friend Dick came in for coffee, that should explain why there is no photo of the final product.
