Yesterday was a hoodie-wearing, soup-sipping, Glade apple cinnamon candle-smelling, Harry Connick Jr-listening kinda day. I think fall is finally starting to show up.
I made some yummy apple spice muffins last night. First ones of the season. Zachary, my muffin lovin' boy, choose to have one as his dessert and patiently waited for them to finish baking. So he was eating a one fresh out of the oven and he looked over to me and said, "Mom, these only taste good if there's a piece of apple in the bite." hmmmmm...hubby tasted the muffin and said, "yep, these aren't sweet." At that moment I remembered not remembering to add the sugar. For a moment I was bummed that a beautiful batch of muffins ruined. But alas, I rescued my baked apple non sweet muffins. I broke them all into large crumbs and placed in a baking dish. Took 3 tbsp of butter and melted it and then added 1/3 C brown sugar and mixed. Then I drizzled it all over the muffin crumbs. Perfect. Warm apples, slightly sweet bread. Delicious once again! :)
Today I finally found some pumpkin puree and grabbed the last 3 cans at my Kroger. Finally some pumpkin bread coming up!
I made the first chili of the season the other night. I'm thinking this weekend I'll have to make my most favorite brunswick stew.
Trying to get some fall decorating up. I have a whole bin of stuff that just aren't doing it for me this time around. May have to break out the spray paint. lol
What are your favorite fall things/recipes/rituals?
