Hey hey hey! Fall is almost here, like literally. Today is supposed to be 95…and three days from now it’s supposed to be 65. That’s how we do in Wisconsin…whether we like it or not! But, as much as I love the warm weather, I admittedly love fall. Every.single.little.thing. about fall. So in honor of fall’s approach, I thought I’d share some of the treats I’m looking forward to enjoying this season for this week’s link up with Jenn at Peas & Crayons.
Mmm I don’t know about all ya’ll, but there is nothing better than a nice warm bowl of oatmeal on a cool, fall day. I really don’t do oatmeal in summer, but love me a nice bowl in fall and winter! So having oatmeal back is an exciting thing. 🙂
I’m not a huge soup fan, truth be told, unless I have a cold or upset tummy and need some chicken noodle soup. However, I am a huge fan of Panera’s soups. I love them all! Especially because you can get them in a bread bowl or you get a nice chunk of baguette on the side. Panera’s soups go hand-in-hand with a cool, cloudy, chilly fall day. Nothing better than snuggling up some place warm with a nice, big bowl of hot soup! (And even better, the one near my home has a nice fireplace, so that is my ideal place to park myself!)
But I think what my favorite part about eating in the fall are baked goods and desserts. Oh.my.goodness.gracious. There are so many baked goods that I love love love.
My mom has two recipes that I look forward to her making every year! They are to.die.for. One is her famous zucchini bread and the other is her pumpkin chocolate chip loaf 🙂 I am dying just thinking of them! I usually hate nuts in baked goods (or ice cream) and will never have anything with nuts in it…but, my mom always makes her zucchini bread with walnuts and that is the ONLY thing that I will make an exception for. I admittedly would prefer it without, but it is too good to pass up!
The rest of my treats are all seasonal flavors of pumpkin and apple goodies! Apple cider donuts, pumpkin pie parfaits, pumpkin dip, and pumpkin pudding dirt cups are all on the must-eat list for this fall. My best friend actually had the GENIUS idea of making dirt cups with pumpkin pudding! That’s why I love her 😉
And of course, fall would not be fall without a generous amount of apple cider (hot and cold!!!)
I can’t wait! Fall, here we come! Ready to get my eatin’ on 😉
