Happy fall, friends! Technically I’m two days ahead of schedule, as the equinox isn’t until Sunday, but its starting to really feel like the seasons are changing in Seattle. All my summer weddings are over, the air is getting crisp, and we’re almost four weeks into football season, so autumn is pretty much here in my book. Which is good news for so many reasons, including all of the pumpkin-themed recipes I get to start making. Cookies, muffins, soups, granola – I hardly know where to begin. And that’s just pumpkin, don’t even get me started on squash and root vegetables. If you have any favorite fall recipes, I would love to hear them in the comments. (I made these pumpkin snickerdoodles for a “new baby dinner” last week, if you’re in a baking mood this weekend – pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin granola coming Monday).
How fun are these vodka escort cards at my friends’ Jody and Anton’s (half) Russian wedding last weekend?
Love the fig garnish on this gorgeous tart (obviously not homemade, but maybe someday).
Hawks tailgate on Sunday – crab feed, Philly cheese steaks, green and blue cupcakes and Jell-O shots, the Manning bowl, flip cup, and a tailgate puppy named Mosley. Have I mentioned how much I love fall?!?
Happy weekend, everyone! I hope yours is filled with pumpkin and tailgates, and/or anything else that you love about this season.
