This seems to be my new blogging . Keep tons of pictures on the camera, and then when you load them onto your computer, compose a post around whatever is in there! Although, this does have a thematic element, so it's not super random. But it is a bit lazy. aah, well. Here are some autumn pictures from around the house and out and about.
Pumpkin and apple picking day!
We opted to buy already picked apples from the orchard, as opposed to picking this year. There were some moody wee ones accompanying us, and I don't think that would have been prudent!
Then, on to pumpkins! (Note the moody hair)
attempt at a family shot!
And a few little pictures from around the house!
The quintessential autumn craft…leaves between wax paper…always a hit! Next year I'll cut the wax paper to fit the window panes…silly me!
And because I can't have a post without the mention of food…these pancakes are the best for chilly mornings! Cinnamon-Oat Pancakes
And a few other great, seasonally appropriate recipes I've tried lately:
Apple-Braised Turkey Thighs from the October issue of Everyday Food. Sooo, yummy and cozy for a dreary cold day.
Butternut Squash and Cheddar Bread Pudding from Bon Appetit. we're still trying to eat all of the butternut squash we harvested! I'm really into savory bread puddings lately. yummy.
As I type this, the first snow of the year is falling! A bit of a slushy, rain/snow mix, but still! I was going to venture out and run some errands today, but I think I might just stay right here. And maybe work on some Halloween animals?!? I'm HOPING to get them done this week. There are so many interruptions these days. Mostly pleasant interruptions!
