There are few foods I consider more comforting and fall-esque than a nice pot of warm chili, but it can also be a pretty heavy meal that doesn’t always pack a lot of nutrition. So rather than go with a typical chili recipe this fall, I tweaked the classic Chile Verde recipe and came up with this lighter version. You can’t have too many chili recipes, can you?!
With the cooler weather quickly approaching, I’ve found myself wanting to get a jump on all thins pumpkin. So, the other day when I was trying to come up with a fun activity, I couldn’t help but do one that was fall themed. I knew a basic recipe for no cook play dough, so I decided to use it and add a little of one of my favorite fall spices to make this Pumpkin Pie Play Dough! It was a real hit all around, and I didn’t have to worry about it going into little mouths because all the ingredients are edible!
Aside from Christmas decorating, fall decorating is my absolute favorite type of embellishing to do. I know I’ve mentioned it more than a few times, but fall is my absolute favorite season. There is just something about all of the colors, scents, and sights that are customary to fall that I just can’t get over. Plus, the slight coolness of the weather is just perfect. So, when I get in the mood for fall decorating, it’s all about bringing a bit of that loveliness to life in our home. I don’t necessarily go “all out” for seasonal decorating like some people. I prefer to keep it pretty simple but yet classy so I can maximize the use of my décor items and enjoy the same decorations all season long without having to switch out things that are Halloween specific, etc. So, if you want a subtle hint of fall in your home (on a budget, of course), check out my tips for decorating for fall.
Growing up I lived in the same town in the same home in the same room, my entire life. An experience that afforded me the opportunity to be accustomed to experiencing none other than all four seasons, but the one that I always looked forward to the most was fall.
While a lot has changed since those days, one thing remains undeniably the same. Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, smells, flavors, decorations…The list goes on, but on the top of that list is making fun fall memories.
So, today I am sharing a few of my favorite fall traditions. I hope you and your family or friends can enjoy them this year too. Continue reading
