If you’re also in the Midwest, I’m sure you’ve been loving this weather lately about as much as I am. Last Sunday was particularly exceptional. The Packers were playing, the sun was out, and my friends were coming over. I cooked– you heard that right– and we watched the Packers slaughter the Panthers. I made Buffalo Chicken Dip and BBQ Chicken Calzones, which were a total hit. If you don’t know me, I’m not much of a cook/baker– so when I make something that people seem to not hate and they completely polish it off with no leftovers, I’d call that a success!
After the game, the four of us headed to a nearby apple orchard to pick some apples. Unfortunately, it is a little late in the season to do so and there were hardly any apples left. So, we spent a whole lot of time walking down empty rows of apple trees, searching for the occasional apple that was left at the top. Kast would throw a dead apple to knock down the good one, giving us the few apples we were able to pick. Regardless, it was a fun, fall day which ended with apple pie at the orchard.
This weekend, I’m back in Iowa at my sister’s. The weather is so gorgeous and I got to bust out my shorts again today! This October is shaping up rather nicely. This week, stay tuned for a new fashion fix and a Halloween inspired DIY.
Until next time–
