I hope you all woke up to less snow than I did yesterday - we got 15 inches, and have downed power lines and trees all over the neighborhood. It will certainly make for interesting trick-or-treating! Our house is one of those houses - you know, the one that gives out king-size candy bars. I hope that the snow doesn't deter too many of the kiddies from coming out - we have 50 candy bars to hand out!
Since we have apparently skipped straight from late summer to the dead of winter, I thought I'd share a few of the recipes I've been dying to try for fall. I intend on making a few tonight, but I think we will have to stretch October well into mid-November to get these all in:
Pumpkin spaetzle with bacon - we plan on making this for dinner tonight!
Roasted pumpkin seeds - this year, we won't try to dry the seeds on paper towels and end up losing them all
Chocolate cinnamon bread - they used to make this at Starbucks, then gave out the recipe right when they stopped having it. So glad they did!
Pumpkin smoothie - seriously, this looks ridiculously delicious. Must have this week.
Normally I would end with some cute pictures of our jack-o-lanterns, but we still haven't carved them! Hopefully we'll have some time to throw them together tonight......happy haunts, everyone!
