Happy Fall Y'all

I can't wait to see all the leaves begin to change color. This is a beautiful time of year. I'm really looking forward to the cool Texas breeze. Yes, those brisk humid temps are just around corner, LOL! It's been in the low 90's and us Southern Texans are over the top with enthusiasm. For the past three months I've felt like I've been either hibernating in the A/C or cooking in the Texas heat. The south isn't really known for it's pleasant summers. However, it's a trade off. We aren't freezing in the winter either. I have relatives that live in Chicago and I honestly don't know how they survive in below zero temps. Last year, when I lived in Austin, it dropped down to the mid 30's. I honestly that I was going to die if I went outside. I looked like an Eskimo with multiple layers, LOL....So, a change (even in the low 90's) is on my "thankful" list.

I'm really looking forward to decorating for fall. You know me, I've been already working on fall decorations for my porch since July. I've had them stashed away just waiting to be revealed. I have all sorts of great ideas for Halloween this year. I'm so excited!!! Have y'all seen the new pie molds from Williams-Sonoma? Very cute! I'm thinking of filling the pumpkin mold with pumpkin pie filling. And I really like the apple too! Yum, apple pie...I'm considering freezing them and pulling them out during the weekends as an evening treat. This is the beginning to all that holiday food. Happy Fall, Y'all!!!

I love, love, love the pie molds!!! This week I was thinking of doing some fried apple pies (as a test before actually doing them for others) and wonder if I could use those???? What a cool idea!

We, in Georgia, are so ready for fall as well. I can't wait.
