Fall Feeling

Well the summer is over and school is back in session so I guess Fall is here. I have yet to start decorating for this wonderful season but I guess soon, the trees will be full of bright oranges and yellows and reds. Fields will be turning  from green to a golden brown, and Hay rides and Bonfires will be the big social events. (at least in our neck of the woods). I just love this time of year. As a kid I remember playing in the fields of high grass (when the weather was a little cooler than now)  and playing hiding seek with our dog. I would lay down in the grass then call her and she would come look for me  finding me everytime.  Now of course, it  means  Decorating with pumpkins and fall leaves, gourds and lots of mums. I love taking trips to the Amish shops in PA this time of year and doing some fall shopping for these types of items in particular. It just really seems to put me in the Festive Fall Mood. I will be doing this next month with my mom as I owe her a shopping trip and lunch for her birthday.

Another exciting thing for me this time of year is a change of product line. You see I am a Tastefully Simple Consultant and the Fall Winter products that have come out this season are WONDERFUL. I just love my job. One item in particular is the Pumpkin Patch Bread Mix There are also lots of recipes to do with this product .

  Here is one of them:
