Happy Sunday! Come see what I’ve been up to this week, plus some of my current faves and new finds.
Halloween is now in the rearview mirror, and that means the holidays are upon us and approaching quickly. Whether we’re ready or not. I’m in full Thanksgiving mode and even looking ahead to Christmas. This year I will not be caught off guard!
Fall is holding on tight with lots of bright sunshine and warm days, but still I’m daydreaming about holiday menus and brainstorming gifts. You can’t be too prepared, right?
Speaking of the holidays, the first of many Thanksgiving pies is coming your way tomorrow. Stay tuned!
Going to try this single serving 5-minute apple crisp from Pinch of Yum asap.
This week John discovered the selfie. Uh oh. Watch out, world!
Last night my husband and I finally watched Chef. We loved it! It’s charming and filled with so much fabulous looking food. Don’t watch it hungry!
Homemade vanilla extract is a great DIY gift, for Christmas or any occasion. Yesterday I put a few bottles together (I told you I was thinking ahead!). Here’s how to do it:
3-5 vanilla beans (depending on size), sliced open lengthwise
1 cup vodka, bourbon or rum
Combine vanilla beans and liquor in a jar. Store out of direct sunlight for 1-2 months before using. Make it today and it will be ready in time for Christmas! FYI, I buy my vanilla beans online.
And that’s it for today, friends. Have a lovely week!
