There's a WHOLE LOTTA COOKING going on....8:59 AM
First thing, before you even go any further, if you haven't already done so, I suggest you RUN, not walk, RUN RUN over to "Overwhelmed with Joy". She is hosting the "Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style" recipe exchange today.
Go share some of your favorite recipes or be prepared to be overwhelmed by food. Yes, I made the mistake of visiting some of the blogs before breakfast and now I'm just starving, salivating and hallucinating the holiday table filled with all that yummy food.
So here, I am looking out for you, here's a cup of coffee and some bacon and eggs, oh and toast, this way you won't be affected as badly as I was.
I've been sitting here getting prepared for the recipes, trying to figure out how to save them all, and there's so many that I'm overwhelmed with joy (literally). So I made a folder in my Bookmarks called "Holiday Cooking" and I'm saving all the links there, later during the week, I'll go through and individually copy them, print them out etc. I figure with so many great dishes to try I will probably have enough to make my own little cookbook....how neat huh???
We could all share our family traditions, different heritages and beliefs, it would be really neat to see how everyone celebrates their holidays. It would be a great place to also get some ideas for those that want to start their own but don't quite know what works for their family. So what do you think, will you join me on November 1st for some Family Holiday Traditions???
It won't be hard, and nothing that you have to really prepare for, just help me spread the word (if you wish of course), use the banner above and then on the 1st of November, I will put up a Mr. Linky and we can all share our traditions. See??? Not hard at all :)
The kids were really disappointed about the Pumpkin Farm, but we told them that there is still one weekend before Halloween, after daddy gets back, so we're planning on going then. Because we couldn't go, we decided to go get a few Halloween Decorations and let them do what they wanted. So this is what we have going on so far:
I also picked up a wonderful candle called "Pumpkin Pie"....OH.MY.WORD!!! It's just amazing, makes me crave pie all day long. Although now that I think about it, I don't know if that's a good thing, since the potpourri you see on the top picture is called Pumpkin Pie Spice and THAT alone makes me gain 2 pounds everytime I walk in the kitchen.
Woke up this morning to cloudy skies and really cold temperatures. You know it's dark outside when your children ask you on the way to school, "why are we up already, isn't it still night time?", you look at the clock in the car and it says 8:15 am. Oh Glorious Fall!!!!
As I was driving back home I couldn't help but to ooohhh and aahhhh at the trees that abound our neighborhoods. There's orange, green, yellow, brown and a beautiful pinkish red.
Here's an example...I took the picture two weeks ago and then this morning again, look at the difference, how beautiful :)
Well it's lunch time for Nicholas, so I better get moving. Don't forget again, go on over to "Overwhelmed with Joy" for the Holiday recipe exchange, and also don't forget to check Laura's blog for her Menu Plan Monday.
