Something about October makes it really feel like fall to me, who knows why but it’s a crazy phenomena! ha
I think my weekend was the perfect way to celebrate truly fall weather.
Saturday morning was an early cup of pumpkin spice coffee enjoyed at my cousin’s soccer game. It was awesome to see him play, and the weather was cool and crisp! Perfect for jeans and a scarf.
My aunt and uncle live right by a Trader Joe’s so I snuck in a quick trip when I left and bought pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin chai tea latte mix, pumpkin butter, and sweet potato gnocchi. Can you tell I’m a little crazy for pumpkin? I went all for it after a conversation my aunt and I had about how we have to enjoy the pumpkin while it’s here and not wait around saving it. So I lived in the moment.
Sunday, I ventured with a couple friends to a nearby apple orchard. We picked apples, ate apple cider donuts, and choose pumpkins!
When I got home, I peeled my apples and made my favorite applesauce. This time I added honey and some ground ginger for extra spice. Just as delicious and now a great treat for the rest of the upcoming week.
Oh I just love fall!
