Everyday I'm reminded more and more why I love the Fall season. Yesterday morning as I was driving through my neighborhood I saw a man putting up a sign for "Noix", walnuts... my favorite. Drive around any of the little roads where I live and you'll be bound to see all sorts of signs..."Pomme di Terre, Oeufs, or even Beurre". It's one of the things I just love about this area.
Before moving to Belgium I bought my walnuts at the grocery store. And then one day, S brought some walnuts home that a co-worker brought in from his yard. I've always loved walnuts but never did I realize how delicious fresh walnuts can be. These walnuts were moist yet crunchy and filled with intense flavor.
Every fall, I see the "Noix" sign & I always want to stop yet it's never good timing. And before I know it the sign comes down and my only option is to buy them at the local markets.
So yesterday afternoon as I drove past the sign I thought... should I buy them? YES!! I made a quick u-turn and pulled up to the front gate and bought 2 kilos worth. Last night I cleaned them and they're drying now... I can't wait to get cracking!
