Have I mentioned that I'm excited about fall? I think I may have expressed that once or twice or twenty times :-) The one thing that gets me more excited about the new season than anything else, is probably going to the grocery store. I love all the fun fall foods that are out right now!
Today I limited my extra purchases to just a few. First of all, as soon as I saw this caramel apple dip, I knew I couldn't pass it up:
I sliced a couple apples and Luke and I ate them with this amazing dip after a long day at work. It was delicious!
And I couldn't pass these up. I know it's early, but I couldn't resist. They are a tradition at our house (okay, so this is only our second year together, but I 'made' them last year too! Isn't that how traditions start?) I just love these Halloween sugar cookies :-)
Last year I think I made them for the Saw marathon that we had at our house. Kind of funny that I made something so cute and innocent to be eaten during probably the most twisted set of movies ever. (I really hate how gory those movies are, but I just can't resist watching them for the crazy, unexpected plot twists! I usually end up with my eyes closed during most of the movies, and I almost had to run to the bathroom at the end of the second movie because it was so gross I thought I was going to be sick. Does anyone else watch these, or am I the only twisted person out there that thinks they're entertaining??)
And I bought this on Saturday, but I just wanted to share it again. It's probably the best tea ever. It's like Red Hots candy in liquid form. But not as hot. SOO good!!
I don't know if I've ever written about my obsession with cookie cutters. We had a drawer in our kitchen that was supposed to be a "junk drawers." However, I think it's safe to just call it a cookie cutter drawer now, because there's nothing else in it, and it barely shuts.
For my birthday last year, my mother-in-law got me these fall cookie cutters. I didn't get a chance to use them yet, because we were so busy with the move all the way up until Thanksgiving last year. But I can't wait to bake some fall cookies and decorate them sometime soon! Are they NOT the cutest cookie cutters ever made?? I especially like the squirrel and the acorn :-)
And that's not all. I also have a bunch of cheap Halloween cookie cutters that I bought at Wal Mart the day I found out that we had to be out of our apartment in a week. So needless to say, that's the exact day that life became crazy and I haven't been able to use them yet, either.
I THINK the middle one on the bottom row is a moon. But the one in the bottom right corner...can anyone help me identify it?? I'm thinking it's a witch on a broomstick, but I'm not sure. (If that's the case, I think it's upside-down in this picture). I literally stood there for 2 minutes before I took this picture, turning it in all different directions to try to figure it oute. Hmm, I can also see a ghost wearing an inner tube if I turn it the other way around ;-) ...Maybe I'll just have to toss that one!
Edit: After reading this post again, I realized that it's a witch's face...it's really obvious now. She's wearing a hat, and she has a long, pointy chin. I might throw it out anyway...I think the other ones are just a lot cuter! To this day, I just really don't like witches. Even the cute kind. Witchcraft is a real thing, and it freaks. me. out.
So what fun things are you doing to celebrate this season? Some of you may be sick of my fall posts. To you I say, just WAIT until Christmastime. This is nothin' compared to that;-)
