2. Fall means College Football!
I absolutely love saturday afternoons with like 5 games to choose from. It is simply marvelous!
3. Fall Food!
Fall just seems like the perfect time for chili and cornbread. I’m not a fan of traditional chili but my sister introduced me to this White Chicken Chili recipe.
It is absolutely the best chili I’ve ever had. Also, this is my dad’s cornbread recipe. It is so great!
1/2 C butter @ room temperature
1 C sugar
1 C yellow corn mean
1 1/2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C milk
Preheat oven to 350
Mix first three ingredients in large bowl. Then add the rest. Spray the pan (works best in a Pyrex glass pan. This is for an 8×8 pan but you can double it for 9×13. Cook for 35-40 minutes
4. Fall means School
Maybe it’s just the teacher in me but fall reminds me of the beginning of school and thus a new “year” so to speak. I love that feeling of getting geared up to learn new things with new people (or if you’re from a wee small town like I am, the same people you went to pre-school with.) I completely enjoy getting new pencils, pens, notebooks, maybe a backpack or lunch box! Fall is definitely time for school.
5. Last but not least…
Fall means my birthday!
My birthday is at the beginning of October. The weather is perfect, there are leaves to crunch, yummy food to eat, presents (obviously), and best of all I get to see my family!
