Autumn Planning

If you didn't know already,  love to make lists. I have note book after note book full of them for everything from food shopping to Christmas. They are my security in a way, I always feel safer if I make a note of each and everything I need to do. Especially when it comes to food shopping, it is dangerous to go without one...more so if you are hungry!

With it now officially being Autumn, my favourite season, I have been making a list of things we would like to do while the leaves are changing. Here is what I have so far...

1. Since moving in we have been anxiously waiting for the apples in our garden to get big enough for us to use. Now that they are I can't wait to get cooking with them! Apple pie will of course be on that list but I have been craving French style pastries for a while now so first up will be apple tarts.

2. We will be picking pumpkins this year, it is now on a list so it has to be done. We have wanted to do it for the past two years but unfortunately never got round to it. This is the year!

3. Carve and decorate said pumpkins.

4. Visit the Enchanted Forest if we can manage to get tickets. We have never been but have heard amazing things about it. 

5. We have decided that a picnic that includes a flask of hot chocolate and a couple of cosy blankets is a must, you can't do that in Summer.

6. I haven't made chilli in such a long time, maybe even since this time last year. It is one of my favourite things to make and eat and it is perfect for Autumn. A huge pot will be made very soon! 

7. To go and watch a fireworks show this Bonfires night. I used to go every year when I was younger but in recent years we haven't and that makes me a little sad. Being a child at heart I love fireworks and being out in the cold eating hot dogs or baked potatoes while watching them always takes me back to being 6 years old. 

8. Have a movie night that includes Hocus Pocus with warm homemade cookies and apple cider.

9. And of course, spend the next few weeks jumping in and running through as many piles of leaves as I possibly can!
