October is here, it’s officially fall and I am so glad! Here are five things I’m really enjoying right now – after you scroll through them, leave a comment and let me know what you’re loving about this time of year!
#1 Soup Season
Paul and I both love soup, and even though I make a lot of hot meals during the summer, I just can’t do soup when it’s hot outside. This week I made my first pot of chili for the season and it was delicious!
I also made a batch of okra hoecakes to go with it, and let me tell you, that was a good decision. I made my hoecakes with fresh okra and a Jiffy mix, but you can get the official recipe from Paula Deen.
#2 Candy Corn
I love things that are special to a season, and candy corn definitely falls in that category! I try to keep a dish of it somewhere in the house until Thanksgiving, but it disappears pretty quickly. I also love to mix it with salted peanuts!
#3 Dark Nail Polish
This is my favorite time of year for nail polish, hands down (wink)! I love the dark, vampy colors just as much now as I did in the 90’s. Essie’s fall collection is full of beautiful shades that are perfect for fall. I linked the collection at Ulta, but I always look for Essie and OPI polish at TJ Maxx and Ross.
#4 All The Pumpkin Things
Personally, I prefer pumpkin in my food – not in my beverages. I was so excited to see that Pumpkin Cheerios were available at Target and immediately added a giant box to my pickup order! It won’t take me long to snack my way through them. 🙂
I was also glad to find that the whole box fit perfectly in my new cereal containers from Amazon!
#5 Cozy Evenings
I know I’m in the minority, but I love when it starts getting dark earlier! There’s nothing better than getting cozy on the couch with the fairy lights twinkling and a candle burning.
What is your favorite thing about this time of year? Where do you stand on candy corn and pumpkin flavored things?
