Raise your hand if you’re still on the pumpkin train. Don’t be ashamed—I’m totally still on it. As long as my grocery store is carrying pumpkin puree for less than $1 a can, it’s pumpkin season. It’s definitely not just an October or November flavor, especially down here. So, who’s ready for a new pumpkin recipe?
Happy Last Friday of the Month! But not only is the last Friday of the month, it’s my birthday! Usually I write some kind of reflective post about lessons learned or goals or something, but this year, I’m sticking to my monthly Friday Five. I’ve probably already posted about what I’d write in this birthday post, anyway. So, onward with my Friday Five highlights for November!
Another year, another holiday season, another, “oh my goodness, the year is basically over” moment. But seriously, I swear it was just February, and now 2018 nearly over. But y’all know what that means? Another holiday Instagram challenge! If you liked last year’s December Instagram challenge, then I have a feeling you’ll enjoy this year’s, too.
They say fall is the best time for a change, so now I have a new website! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out, and my designer did an incredible job. More on that over on my Instagram. But for now, let’s celebrate fall and the holiday season (and my new website, obviously) with some tasty beverages! I’ve been working on some fabulous fall drinks and I’m excited to share a few with y’all today.
Can y’all believe the holidays are just around the corner? I’m already starting to think about what my family and I will eat on Thanksgiving. Now that I’m older and a more experienced cook, I like to contribute to the actual meal rather than just eating and helping with the cleanup. I love making desserts, but this year I’m contributing something else to the day: sweet potatoes, as a side dish!
I swear it feels like I was just writing my September Friday Five post. Do I say that every month? Maybe that’s because I didn’t blog a whole lot this month—sorry, y’all, lots going on behind the scenes! Either way, the end of October is near and it’s time for another edition of Friday Five.
