24 Sep

I am back after a short trip. I spent a pleasant time with the family. My mother was making the traditional food for winter ajvar. Ajvar originated in Serbian cuisine and is made with red peppers, eggplant, garlic and chili pepper. It can be sweet, spicy, or very hot. Ajvar can be consumed as a bread spread, a side dish, or as a salad. I offered to help in preparation. And I also brought one jar with me.
During my visit I met my dear friend. We spent one afternoon together, walking, talking and we ate some delicious food. Also that was the first time I tried tiramisu ice cream mmm..There were many people on the streets, they probably wanted to spend the last warm days of the year outside.
Before leaving home to go to meet with the friend I took the picture of this wonderful flower, and it's good I photographed it that day because next day the flower was closed. Maybe that is the way how nature reminds us that beauty is transient.
When I think of autumn my first associations are quince and chestnuts.

    @Teresia- thank you very much :happy: Yes, I'm enjoying the dishes I brought with me. Last time I brought tomatoes from our garden. Tomatoes from food stores usually don't have smell and taste like the ones from garden. At least here.@Anchi- yes, I did :heart: Thank you very much :happy:

    You are right, Mira. When I was a child we had garden and my mother grew tomatoes… I like the smell of the fresh tomatoes and also the smell when we are around the tomatoes tree… wondering I will have a chance to grow some trees… 🙂

    Brinjals are popular here. But strange enough, My late Mom never served them in any form. :left:.
