I eagerly await October because it means that I will be able to drag Stephen to the pumpkin patch, ride a hay-ride, and sip on fresh apple cider. We made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago, and fun was had by us both. (They even had wine tasting that day!).
Today we carved the large pumpkin we chose and brought home from the pumpkin patch, which brings me to another fall pumpkin favorite of mine:
Roasted pumpkin seeds. We dug and and saved all of the seeds from our large pumpkin and tonight we will spread them out on a cookie sheet, slather them in oil and salt, and bake them. Delicious!

And the last but not least because it is often on my mind:
a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Otherwise known as: Heaven in a Cup.
My next adventure this week will be using fresh pumpkin from our smaller pumpkins to make homemade pumpkin bread.
What is your favorite part about fall?
