This year, we have welcomed in fall with a few bits of decorating . . .
A new purse for momma (a $5 thrift store find . . . I LOVE LABELS - in Bellingham - worth the drive!!)
A huge crockpot full of our favorite fall soup and a crusty loaf of bread (homemade by Winco this morning) . .
(can be made on the stove or in a crock pot - I prefer the later as the house smells heavenly)
4 Tbl butter
2 small minced onion
6 cups cubed butternut squash
1/2 quarts chicken stock
3 cups cubed potatoes (I leave the skins on and no one will notice!!)
2 teas paprika
After crock potting for the whole day or simmering 35-40 min on the stove, carefully blend the hot mix
To finish, stir in a cup of whipping cream and salt and pepper to taste
And my fabulous photographer friend is even offering a fall photo special . . .
Check out her website . . . www.myfocalpointphotos.com and you will see just how amazing she is! She is incredible at catching the real spirit of the family . . . no cheesy shots here! She did our family photos this year before spring and I treasure everyone . . . with the colors changing on the trees, Christmas cards coming up, and a sweet family - you really should check her out!!
All this to say, WELCOME FALL - we are glad you're here . . .
