It’s fall-la-la-la-la-la-la-la…I will see myself out 😛 Seriously though, I think it’s here – the inaugural apple crisp came out of the oven this morning & I think the heat might have to be turned on tonight. I’m feeling cozy & thought it would be fun to do tag! Does anyone still do tags, I feel as though I ask that each time I do a tag…
Apple cider with a shot of coconut milk and caramel drizzle. Caribou has a really tasty apple cider but if you get it with almond milk it just isn’t quite the same – still good though. They also offer it all year round so if you are feeling fall’ish in July, you can indulge in this treat.
I particularly love the smell of fall, it’s crisp & clean unlike spring/summer that often smell like manure. Also, I don’t have any fall allergies which is really nice since this means I can enjoy the scent of fall with full ability to breath through both nostrils. I also prefer fall fashion to any other season, sweaters, boots, tights & you can wear these just for fun (not because you’re freezing).
Anything with oranges, cloves, vanilla – I saw this recipe to make your home smell like Williams Sonoma & love simmering that on the stove when I am cleaning. I don’t purchase a lot of candles any more but if I do, the Woodwick Bonfire Nights is one that I will splurge on.
Probably apple, the texture of pumpkin pie weirds me out but I do like the flavor. Thinking about it now seems odd since I really like sweet potato pie & the texture is similar but just different enough. Does any of this make sense? Do food textures bother anyone else?
I’m not worrying too much about makeup these days but a recent discovery that I have been loving & wearing almost every time I wear makeup are the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks – they are so good for a quick, polished eye look.
I don’t think they are traditions as much as they are just things that I enjoy doing during fall. I like going to the Farmers Market, visiting an orchard or two, getting the flannel sheets out…things like that. Overall, I am just not a traditions person – I think it’s a nice idea but I don’t have any that come to mind.
Absolutely Halloween! I know that people really love Thanksgiving, I know some Thanksgiving enthusiasts but I don’t get it. I like the extra days off from work but that’s about it. And the potatoes, I look forward to all of the potato recipes that accompany Thanksgiving feasts.
The first year I moved to Minnesota, it rained all fall – at least it seemed that way & I was really down about it. I graduated from a very old university with very old dorms that were drafty & damp – I hated it but I spent a lot of time in the library & those are my best memories of college. To this day, I like to sit inside with lamps on & read books or bake.
Chili, homemade bread, waffles – all foods that I associate with fall. Pumpkin chili is something that I have recently started making & it’s so good. What’s your go-to chili recipe? Ohhh, cornbread too – I love cornbread.
What are anyone’s plans for Halloween?! We were already told by building management that trick-or-treating is not allowed so I won’t be making treat bags as usual. I think this will truly be the end of trick-or-treating all around. Haunted houses won’t be open…I don’t know what my plans are – probably sitting at home watching old Halloween specials.
That’s it – I hope that you enjoyed this tag, let me know what you are up to this fall. Are you planning anything for Halloween or sitting it out this year? Happy fall 🖤
