Please welcome Maury from Life on Mars
I LOVE soup in the fall. I make my Slow-Cooker Potato Soup, Chicken Corn Chili, Taco Soup or Pasta e Fagioli at least once a week. I’ve only posted the recipe for the Potato Soup, but I definitely need to do the rest! They are amazing.
2. Fires and candles
I don’t really burn candles very much in the spring in summer. Something about fire says fall and winter to me. I’ve just discovered Wood Wick Candles:
The wooden wicks crackle just like a fire, so on nights that you or the hubs don’t feel like the hassle of a real fire, this is a great substitute. Plus the smells are great. They fill the house and I can even smell it well after we blow the candle out.
3. Changing Leaves
There is something about the leaves changing that warms my heart. We’re in the Georgia mountains this week and it’s supposed to be peak for the leaves, I’m so excited about it!
I’m obsessed, especially preggers. I can still fit into a lot of my “boyfriend” style cardigans and plan to take advantage. The above cardigans are all available at Target.com (I’m also more than a little thrifty )
I’ll let you in on a little secret: I like Thanksgiving more than Christmas. There’s none of the stress of figuring out presents, but all the fun of spending time with family, decorating and eating lots of DELICIOUS food. Granted, Christmas has to get a one up because it marks the birth of my Savior, so there’s something to be said for that, but I love Thanksgiving. Here are two recipes that were big hits last year:
Creamy Fried Corn… seriously… CREAMY. FRIED. CORN. Heaven.
(even people who don’t like pumpkin raved over this recipe!)
Hope you all have a very wonderful Fall season! and Happy Halloween tomorrow! Maybe that should have been in my top 5 but it's just not. :-)
Oh those recipes look so good! Thank you so much, Mars, for sharing your faves!
