                                          I was inspired by this photo I saw on this blog.

Happy Halloween!

I was really looking forward to taking my son trick-or-treating this year. Had planned to dress him as Buzz Lightyear, but since my husband likes doing things last minute we were unable to fine a Buzz costume in his size, so we dressed him up as a spider.

Homemade Autumn Wreath.

Last Fall I was inspired to make my own wreath, but unfortunatly was unable to because our arts and crafts store on base didn't have all the things I wanted/needed to make one. This year I live near a Hobby Lobby and a Michaels!

2 floral bouquets. (i cut all the flowers, berries, leaves etc off)
wreath base.
hot glue gun.
glue sticks.
wire cutters.

A Day of Pumpkin.

For brunch I made Pumpkin Pancakes and eggs w/ chorizo. Mmm it was Jesus! (saying i got from a friend when something is good.) I found the recipe from this
site and just had to try it cos I looooove pumpkin flavor.

Southwest Steak Salad.

I'm not big on red meat, but after being pregnant w/ our son Aiden I've become a little more open minded and have tried it.

First of the Fall cooking in the Weaver household.

Like I've said in a previous post I plan to cook a lot of fall foods and since I'm starting on a weight loss journey I'm going to make sure they are all healthy. Which means low calorie, low sat fat, low or no sugar and low sodium. This morning I decided to make Granola. For some reason it just makes me think of fall w/ all the dried fruits and nuts.

Photo's, Photo's and more Photo's.

I've been printing out all my son's baby photos and getting them all organized, but it's taking forever cos we keep running out of ink. This is the 3rd time we've ran out so I have to wait to get more to print out the rest and hopefully I can get done before we run out again. Once I'm done w/ this little project I'll be moving onto his scrapbook. I do however need to find another baby album since I ran out of pages. I found one here at the house but it doesn't have enough pages for all the photos I have printed out already and for the ones coming.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies.

My husband found this recipe online a while back, prints it out and brings it to me and asks me to make them so we could try them out. He thought I'd love them since it contains two of my favorite things, bacon and chocolate. Here's how they turned out.

Welcome Fall!

Fall is one of my most favorite seasons. Love the changing of the leaves, drop in temperature, the smell of bonfires and chimenys, shorter days,big comfy blankets to cuddle under, visits to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin carving, holidays soon arriving, the flavors of fall....... Mmm. This year I plan to make a lot of fall flavored foods. One of my most favorites is pumpkin! I've been making a pumpkin soup for a few years now and its heaven! The first time I made it I wasn't so sure how it would taste, but it turned out so well that my husband asks for it each year. My aunt got me a pumpkin tourine last year for Christmas and I can't wait to  use it! Also looking forward to making Chicken and Dumplings. I remember my mum making it and the smell filling up the house, so warm and comforting.

What do you like about the season and what are your favorite cold weather comfort foods?
