Can you say NESTING! I feel like once Fall hits I start to nest in preparation for the Winter down days. I clean all the rooms in the house, I bake a lot, and I have a ton of energy. Oh yeah and all the leaves changing colors and all that jazz is pretty nice too. 😉 I didn’t take a ton of pictures because I was mostly running around cleaning and doing errands.
Friday was spent grocery shopping and a quick trip to Target. I got all the ingredients for a lot of recipe testing I wanted to do.
Saturday Seamus woke me up early and gave me all the smiles while doing it. I did some reading and then I made some Brown Sugar Cinnamon Beer Bread with Brown Sugar Butter, recipe is next week. After a few chores I started on a soup for dinner. While it was cooking I watched Hocus Pocus which was on my Fall Bucket List. Check and Check. The soup was a Chorizo Soup with Black Beans and Corn made in the crockpot. I’ll be sharing the recipe tomorrow. I started to pull out my Fall decorations but it
was pitiful needs some work so more to come next weekend.
Sunday was a lot more cleaning including going through my closet to get rid of any clothes I could to donate. I couldn’t do the power cleaning session with out some coffee first so I made the Butterscotch Caramel coffee I posted about on Friday, the non-alcohol version of course. I was amazing!
I had to do some yard work for a few hours and then I started on another soup for lunch, the Brie and Cheddar Apple Beer Soup with Cinnamon Pecan Oat Crumble I mentioned for my Bucket List. It was really good and I will be glad to have the leftovers for the week but it was really time consuming and took about 1-1/2 hours so I probably wouldn’t make it again unless trying to impress someone or having a dinner party.
The rest of the night was relaxing, blogging, watching Addiction and Hoarders. Why can I not change the channel when that show comes on??
Here is to a 4 day work week, let it go by fast!
How was your weekend?
