Pumpkin flavored Stuffed Jalapeño Appetizer

We experienced a delightful field trip to a Pumpkin Patch near Floydada, TX.  It’s in a country setting among fields of pumpkins!  Pumpkin inspiration washed over me as we visited a large barn filled with pumpkins, gourds, some crafty items and edible treats.  The whole experience set me in a mood to get busy and create.  My son came up with a delicious pumpkin flavored stuffed jalapeño appetizer I submitted to #SoFabSeasons pumpkin themed group post with his permission and I’m sharing it with you.

Quick Easy Adorable Halloween Decorations

If you want to put together some quick, easy and cheap Halloween decorations for a party or just for the fun of it, you'll love these ideas.  Most are from things you already have on hand and others can be purchased at a dollar store.  


Apple recipes, apple crafts, apple activities and an apple beauty scrub

Three things that make me feel like fall is complete are leaves of gold, pumpkins galore and apples.  The Social Fabric Community came together to bring you all kinds of apple themed posts for this fall season.  I can tell you I have been excitedly waiting for everyone to finish their posts and to share them with you.  You won't be sorry for browsing through and visiting the entries.  I've already started pinning to my Apple Pinterest board and I'm thinking the Apple Pie Coconut Ice Cream is first on my to do list.

Apple themed party with a DIY Apple Craft

A crisp breeze is blowing through the sky bringing fall smells with it.  Deep reds, oranges and yellows are showing in the landscape, I close my eyes and remember walking through an apple orchard to pick my own basket full.  I can hardly wait to sink my teeth into the juicy ripe red fruit.  I decided to  invite some friends over for a fall themed party featuring apples.  My theme was born out of an apple challenge and I will share with you a simply adorable and super easy apple craft I whipped together in about an hour plus a cider recipe.

Broccoli with Monterrey Jack Queso

I readily admit that this food challenge to use broccoli in a new recipe beat me.  If I don’t nuke it in the microwave for a few minutes then I eat it raw with Ranch Dressing!  So to say the least I’m looking forward to seeing what the other challengers come up with.  Maybe I’ll cook it more often. Here’s what I do with broccoli in five minutes or less for a quick side dish or some added vegie to salad.

Check Ballooning off the bucket list

I spent a wonderful week in the cool air of Colorado last week.  Hubs and I celebrated our anniversary in a balloon ride with an absolutely beautiful view of the Rockies.  We drove from Texas for seven hours to sleep in a nice hotel room so we could rise and shine at 6:00 AM.  That’s when we met the pilot and rest of our group in the hotel lobby.
