All About Autumn
The boys and I went to Entire Meals to refill on pumpkins. We hope to go to a pumpkin patch this weekend to get extra! However this was an excellent begin. I additionally was thrilled to seek out burnt orange mums. I’m not loopy about yellow mums. Yellow makes me nervous. It’s alarming!
All of us love the swan gourd!
We additionally bought two carving pumpkins and I bought some good follow for Halloween as a result of we wanted a carved pumpkin for our KiwiCo craft! Let me inform you after 39 years of utilizing the improper instruments for pumpkin carving, we lastly have all the things we have to make it simple! This man took me no time to carve. Get a punch-out package like this.
As I discussed in a earlier put up, KiwiCo despatched us their Puking Pumpkin Equipment. For sure, it was a HUGE hit!! (And it’s solely $12.95 to order.)
We did at the least 5 rounds of colours / puking episodes
And it was simple sufficient for each of them to take part within the mixing and pouring.
Needed to share this croque madame we bought as take-out from MarieBette for weekend brunch. On house-made sourdough with ham and gruyere and some pastries on the facet. Good gasoline earlier than a soccer recreation later within the day.
And on the lighter facet, a juuuuuust finished hard-boiled egg (my trick is a fast boil for 8 minutes sharp) with grapes and half a cinnamon raisin bagel.
And likewise I shared this LOL second on Instagram after I completed Birch’s half-eaten plum as a part of my breakfast. Oh how instances have modified.
Fall Solstice with Ferns
One other fall-fun exercise was a fall solstice occasion at our buddies’ home. They dwell on high of Wintergreen mountain so it was a hike to get there with lovely views!

Making an attempt Inexperienced Chef
Pluses: I like that they’re a bit extra well being targeted and are a USDA-certified natural firm. I additionally actually preferred that quite a lot of the substances have been one-step forward of prep (the cabbage was already shopped; the sauce was already ready) so the cooking time was tremendous quick!
Downsides: the 4-person plan got here in two separate containers which was merely extra to unpack. And it is a little more costly.
We liked the recipes!!
Rooster and Potato Soup
Sesame Shrimp Stir-Fry
And a extremely superb pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes and a sun-dried tomato kale salad. Mazen really stated on the dinner desk “That is actually good pork.” (And he not often compliments the chef.)
In the event you’d like to present it a attempt, my affiliate hyperlink ought to get you 50% off your first field and 22% off a couple of after that for a complete of $135 off.
