Feeling Like Fall

Soup season has begun in my house!
It’s starting to feel like fall in my house, despite this up and down weather. One minute it’s hot the next minute I need a jacket. I’ll take the random warm days because I do not look forward to winter or the days getting darker faster. It’s a sign that it’s fall when the soup is on in my house. On Saturday morning I got up early and made a chicken chili and a pot of roasted chicken and butternut squash soup. I got this recipe from an issue of Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food magazine two years ago and I can’t wait for fall to make it.
For @kenyc24 chai pumpkin spice thumbprint cookies. Thanks @ldkreimer for turning me on to these!
My husband loves fall for pumpkin spice chai lattes, I actually make a really good one at home with the Tazo Chai concentrate but I don’t like chai. Since I know how much he loves it when my girlfriend told me about Chai Pumpkin Spice Thumbprint cookies I knew my husband would be over the moon if I made a cookie just for him. The recipe makes 2 dozen small cookies and they include the white chocolate pumpkin Hershey kisses – again lots of things I don’t like but flavors my husband LOVES. He told me the cookies were an absolutely wonderful treat, so I’m glad i made them.
I refused to let this pattern get the best of me! Finally making progress. #knitting #yarn #onmyneedles
And since it’s fall I’m now in full knitting mode, YAY! This is going to be the Day Brightener Ascot scarf. I thought the pattern was so cool and intricate that I had to buy it. I was terrified that I wouldn’t be able to complete it but it’s actually coming out pretty well. Of course there are a few mistakes but I learned that it shows it’s handmade to have a little imperfection. So what signs are showing you it’s fall in your house?

  1. My favourite things about Fall are: my bday next Monday!!! The start to hibernation, cosy knit/crochet evenings, healthy soups, savoury breads, apple cider, crisp air, fall foliage and of course the holidays! Love, love, love it!!!
