I meant to write this post last night but instead I watched another episode of Lark Rise to Candleford with my daughter.
Have you watched any of this delightful BBC series? It’s my one weakness (watch and you’ll understand!)
We are on Season Two and loving every minute of it. We laugh, smile and sigh together and sometimes there may even be a tear or two! We both have a crush on Fisher. Check it out if you haven’t. We are getting it through Netflix. I believe Season Four is current on BBC. Each day it is “Hurry and get your homework done so we can watch another episode!” Love it!
Pumpkin, apples, cinnamon and fall – they just all go together. In fact, all the baking and cooking I’ve been doing this last week seems to involve apples or pumpkin and cinnamon.
This weekend I made a batch of these pumpkin cookies with maple frosting to send to Utah to the boys. Clark also requested a batch of sour cream apple bars so of course I made some. Then there were the delicious apple strudel muffins for Muffin Monday.
Then I made a yummy apple/cinnamon/caramel dessert. This one didn’t have pumpkin but oh so good – recipe coming soon!
We also enjoyed some pumpkin waffles with buttermilk syrup for breakfast this last week. They are the perfect fall breakfast (or dinner!)
Fall has definitely arrived here in Portland. The mornings are cool and the trees are turning colors. I LOVE this time of year – definitely my favorite.
What says Fall better than pumpkin? My friend Jane has raved to me about her pumpkin waffles for years. I finally got her to give me the recipe this last week!
I think I would like anything that was covered in buttermilk syrup or cinnamon syrup!
Beware: they are rich!
Pop them on a Halloween plate and you’ve got the perfect Halloween morning breakfast or dinner. Fill up the tummies of those little mummies before you send them out!
Do you have a favorite Halloween day meal?
