I LOVE Saturdays like this:

I LOVE Saturdays like this:
· No plans
· No alarm
· Chilly, fall morning
· Drinking coffee leisurely by the warm fire (ok, I know it’s not that cold yet, but mom and I did start the fire for about 15 minutes to get the chill out of the house this morning. We still haven’t turned on the heat)
· Trying new recipes
· Football (however, my team lost)
· Time for crafts
· A trip to Target
· NO phone calls (sometimes it’s just nice to be quiet!)
Craft Projects: I found the directions for these cute pumpkins on one of my favorite blogs here. They are super easy and I really love them. I feel so productive too!

(please excuse the dust on my bookshelves)

The Process...

Now for the food, all of these recipes can be found here:

Sweet Potato Chips and Blue Cheese Dip

Corn Pudding

Sweet Potatoes

Chili...don't make the same mistake I did. The recipe calls for 3 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce I put in 3 cans of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Of course my version was much too hot to actually eat! I tried to tone down the overwhelming heat but ended up having to separate this big pot into 3 separate batches to put in the freezer. Then when I'm ready for chili again I'll use it as an already seasoned base to start a new pot. I can't believe I did that! It's something my mom would do!

Your pumpkins are adorable!! I love the font choices.

You do feel so productive when you finish them, don't you?

Thanks for letting me know that you'd made them.

Too bad about the chili. Those sweet potato chips do look good.
