Hello, hello! Welcome to Nurtured Yawns!
Yes, it's true, one thing you must know about me is I love Christmas! Oops, jumping ahead of myself again....and I love fall🍁🍂! The family time, the all you can eat buffets of soups and pies that smell just as warm and homey as they taste, the fuzzy socks and blankets...it all brings my heart such great joy!
I've personally been challenging myself to try cooking some of the recipes and food items that I love to buy most during the fall and so far, it's been fun! I did a Butternut Squash soup for the first time, Pumpkin Pie for the first time in years, and this week some Apple Muffins using apples form when my little family and I went apple picking recently 🍎! I keep telling myself to make apple pie next but I'm starting to think I'll be doing the faster and healthier option instead, namely: peeling an apple, slicing it, sprinkling it with cinnamon and popping it into the microwave for a minute or two. It's a similar aroma, and a lovely flavour, minus the extra calories, time prepping and cleanup! Did I mention I'm a wife, a homeschooling mama to a toddler, and preschooler, just starting a business, and pregnant with baby #3...sometimes the time saving option works better for my schedule!
How about you? What are some of your favourite things about fall?
