Fall Fun!

While the stores seem to have skipped from Halloween to Christmas, its important to remember that it's still Fall!

What does this mean?

Set your clocks back an hour when you go to sleep Saturday night. Enjoy an extra hour of rest!

Don't throw out your pumpkins!  Make pumpkin puree to use in some of your favorite Fall dishes like pumpkin bread or pie.  Cut your pumpkin in half and remove the seeds. Cut into manageable pieces and lay on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the flesh is soft. Blend or mash and drain the juice. Use for baking!

Plant a Fall garden. Cool weather crops include spinach, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.

Begin experimenting for Thanksgiving dinner by trying out new recipes and thinking of fun ways to serve them!  Take advantage of deals on Fall decor for your table centerpiece.

Make a thankful tree and hang leaves on it with message of gratefulness and thankfulness.

Enjoy the shorter days with warmly scented candles and prepping the fireplace for your first fire!

Invite friends and family over to watch football on the weekends - whether you like the game or not! It's a great reason to socialize with delicious food!

What other Fall activities will you be taking part in this November?
