Fall Favorites

pumpkinsOctober is possibly my most favorite month of all.

1) Warmish weather turns to cooler temps.

2) Pumpkins – Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin roll (I could go on and on), pumpkin farms and pumpkin carving.

3) Apples – Applesauce, apple pie, apple bread, apple tarts, apple cobbler (again….do we see a trend here?).

4) Boots

5) Fall Festivals

6) Costumes and Trick or Treating

7) Homecoming

8) Soup

9) Fall Leaves

10) Fires

October – I love everything about it.  Today we are going to the pumpkin farm and then I want to pick up some apples from a local apple orchard.  Once we get those home I plan on making homemade crockpot applesauce and maybe even a cobbler.  If you haven’t tried making your own applesauce it’s so easy and delicious.  Here’s the recipe we’ve been using.  Both kids love it!


Crockpot Applesauce

10 large apples – peeled, cored and cut into chunks

1/2 cup of water

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 – 1 cup of sugar (we use less than 1/2 cup)

Put everything in your crockpot and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low 8-9 hours.  Once done, mash to desired consistency.  Serve warm or cold.
