I already posted about how much I am loving fall this year… I wanted to share some of my favorite fall things with everyone. 🙂
Favorite Fall Item #1 ~ Macoun Apples and Apple Picking: Apple picking at least once during the fall season has become a yearly tradition for us. Usually when the Macoun apples from the first apple picking trip are all eaten and used for baking, we head out one more time to pick up a new bag of deliciously fresh, seasonal and local apples from a farm nearby.
Side note: I did make another attempt this season at my favorite treat, apple cake, in a gluten-free format. The taste was delicious, but the consistency was a little crumbly for my liking, and I’m way too hard on myself to post the recipe until I find something that comes out awesome.
If you didn’t already know, I love Trader Joe’s. We go there weekly, at least, and have some TJ staples in our house at all times. This time of the year everything at Trader Joe’s is PUMPKIN. Yesssss and Yummmm!!!
Favorite Fall Item #2 ~ Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Herbal Tea: One look at this and I had to have it. Pumpkin and rooibos in one little satchel, yes please! Mmmmmmmmm, so good.
Favorite Fall Item #3 ~ Harvest Blend Herbal Tea: I was going on and on about how much I loved the Pumpkin Spice Rooibos and my friend Angela mentioned this deliciousness that she shared with her mom. She promptly brought me a box the next day and I was instantly hooked. I have since purchased four more boxes, because as we all know, it’s seasonal, so once it’s gone, it’s GONE until next fall!
Favorite Fall Item #4 ~ Anything I can make in my crock pot: Please welcome this amazing soup/stoup to my recipe collection – Quinoa and Kale Minnestrone Soup/Stew. The ingredients looked delicious when I saw the recipe, then I made it and was beyond my expectations. Recipe coming soon…
Favorite Fall Item #5 ~ Pumpkins, of course: How could I not love pumpkins, especially ones grown in our very own garden, by my cutie son Brendan. <3 Check him out… so proud!
