All About Autumn
The boys and I went to Complete Meals to refill on pumpkins. We hope to go to a pumpkin patch this weekend to get extra! However this was a great begin. I additionally was thrilled to seek out burnt orange mums. I’m not loopy about yellow mums. Yellow makes me nervous. It’s alarming!
All of us love the swan gourd!
We additionally acquired two carving pumpkins and I acquired some good follow for Halloween as a result of we wanted a carved pumpkin for our KiwiCo craft! Let me inform you after 39 years of utilizing the improper instruments for pumpkin carving, we lastly have every little thing we have to make it simple! This man took me no time to carve. Get a punch-out package like this.
As I discussed in a earlier put up, KiwiCo despatched us their Puking Pumpkin Package. For sure, it was a HUGE hit!! (And it’s solely $12.95 to order.)
We did a minimum of 5 rounds of colours / puking episodes
And it was simple sufficient for each of them to take part within the mixing and pouring.
Needed to share this croque madame we acquired as take-out from MarieBette for weekend brunch. On house-made sourdough with ham and gruyere and some pastries on the aspect. Excellent gas earlier than a soccer sport later within the day.
And on the lighter aspect, a juuuuuust achieved hard-boiled egg (my trick is a fast boil for 8 minutes sharp) with grapes and half a cinnamon raisin bagel.
And likewise I shared this LOL second on Instagram after I completed Birch’s half-eaten plum as a part of my breakfast. Oh how instances have modified.
Fall Solstice with Ferns
One other fall-fun exercise was a fall solstice social gathering at our buddies’ home. They stay on high of Wintergreen mountain so it was a hike to get there with lovely views!
In case you recall, Birch and Fern had the identical due date! We miss seeing Fern on a regular basis in school since she moved to a different faculty final yr. Fortunately these two are nonetheless good buddies every time they reunite.
4 years of mother buddies <3
That view! Proper in our buddies’ yard.

Making an attempt Inexperienced Chef
Pluses: I like that they’re a bit extra well being targeted and are a USDA-certified natural firm. I additionally actually favored that a whole lot of the components had been one-step forward of prep (the cabbage was already shopped; the sauce was already ready) so the cooking time was tremendous quick!
Downsides: the 4-person plan got here in two separate containers which was merely extra to unpack. And it is a little more costly.
We beloved the recipes!!
Hen and Potato Soup
Sesame Shrimp Stir-Fry
And a extremely superb pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes and a sun-dried tomato kale salad. Mazen really stated on the dinner desk “That is actually good pork.” (And he hardly ever compliments the chef.)
In case you’d like to present it a attempt, my affiliate hyperlink ought to get you 50% off your first field and 22% off just a few after that for a complete of $135 off.
Date Night time with Gary Clark Jr.
