Fall is Here!

I'm so happy!  It's finally Fall around here!  Even when it's sunny, it's still cool enough to wear pants and long sleeves....I love it!  This is my favorite time of the year......that is, except for the time change.  I don't mind that it gets dark so early now (it just means the kids are in bed earlier)......but I do mind the fact that since the time change, the kiddos have been waking up at 5:15 on the dot.  How the heck do they have the internal clock to know that it's 5:15 every morning.....I just don't get it.  And no, it doesn't matter if we put them to bed later.....they are still up at the crack of dawn (or before dawn).  Mommy needs lots of caffeine on mornings like these.

Since I love all things about Fall.....I had to try this Roasted Autumn Panzanella Salad from How Sweet It  Is.  Roasted butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and apples......tossed with arugula, pomegranate, and toasted bread.  Fantastic tasting......and healthy.....I love it!  The hubby's only complaint was that when I dished out the salad I seemed to give him way more of the roasted veggies and bread, so his was a little more carb heavy.  So, just make sure that each serving has enough greens to balance out the carbs.

Check out How Sweet It Is for the recipe......and Enjoy!

P.S. - I decided to channel my inner Martha (Stewart), and make some glitter pumpkins that I had seen her do a couple of years ago.  What do you think?

I just painted glue onto some small pumpkins I had left over from Halloween.....and then doused them in Martha's amazing glitter (available at Michael's).  Shake off the excess and let dry.  I love how they look on my mantel!

  1. I've been the same way since the time change. Pretty annoying!

    Visiting from Turning the Table Thursday...I had to stop by and see what this beautiful salad was all about. Gorgeous!

    Nice fall display too.
